comment Weird entry for robots.txt on a Naked Domain in Google Webmaster Tools
@Lèse majesté if this was an answer - I would accept it. You're right and we are left to pick up the pieces. Recovery has gone quite well though.

It was a generic parking page with links to dodgy car insurers and a handful of our prominent competitors.

Unfortunately due to the nature of the company I work for, it wouldn't reflect well upon them to reveal such details. Although I appreciate it would be easier to see what is going on.

Not now (as we have addressed the issue) but last night I used Tor to see what it looked like from the US and it was showing a generic parking page.

Politics. I personally wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot bargepoll.

comment How can I prevent Google mistakenly offering to translate a page?
Google usually does use English for google.com, google.co.uk, etc however what about the crawler for google.de, etc? But regardless, selective use of the class seems the best way out of this.

comment Do you want to include your registrant information in third party Bulk Whois requests?
You can always send them an email to ask. But SSL should have nothing to do with WHOIS (although it may be on the same screen when signing up). I'd say no.

comment is it google webmaster crawler's fault or a virus?
The spammy site may (and usually do not) not honour robots.txt and neither does it need to. I was referring to the spammy site HAVING that link (there have been loads of these and if you catch them soon enough you'll usually see syndicated content and lots of domains with the same weird paths on the end of their URLs) and then being subsequently crawled by a search engine (so the robots.txt is under their control). By you editing your robots.txt to be less permissive Google's crawler would never even attempt to index that page, so no 404 in Webmaster Tools.
