I was reading this question. Let's say i have a div with something useful for users but i don't want it to be considered by Google. If i put this on an iframe and block the googlebot with robots.txt so it won't read it. Would i be penalized?

Did google ever clarified it? Or maybe from experience someone can confirm it's alright to do, or not?


No your site will not penalize by search engine as many of the website also used such techniques or code where crawler are not able to crawl the area of the web page. It is not the reason to penalize the Site or page.
