SilverDisc is 15 years old today! SilverDisc was established on March 10, 1993 by three people (Alan Perkins, Allan Todd and Eric Barfield) who had met while working on interactive CD applications at Philips in Surrey. That is why the company is called SilverDisc – because its first products and services were delivered on CD, a “silver disc”.

Matt Cutts has stirred up a little hornets' nest with his "What should NOINDEX do?" post. Matt reckons the topic will be colossally boring to some people - but not to me. For some reason I find Robots standards fascinating. Yep, I know I'm weird.

SilverDisc Gives Zach's Helping Hand a Helping Hand
Charity Christmas cards are commendable, but still a large part of the cost of buying and posting charity cards does not end up with the charity itself. So this year, SilverDisc has chosen to donate its entire Christmas card budget of £250 to local charity Zach's Helping Hand, and instead send an electronic Christmas card. Zach's Helping Hand is used by families with children near to the end of life to receive palliative care within the love of their own homes.

The question is whether Google should completely drop a NOINDEX’ed page from our search results vs. show a reference to the page, or something in between?

OK, sorry for the slightly misleading headline (although if you read on you'll find it's not that misleading). No apologies, though, for giving my opinion on what is now old news, which is that Google has dropped Best Practice Funding for agencies from 2009 onwards.

This article was first written and published by me in 2000/2001, but no longer exists on the Web. It's still accurate - although search engines (notably Google) have taken steps to correct some of the problems described below, they can and do still arise.

If a page has a NOINDEX tag on it, how much PageRank does it have? The intuitive answer would be "None". How can a page that is not indexed have PageRank?
