+ - Google News gets a separate web crawler and index

Submitted by markkezner
markkezner (1209776) writes "In response to complaints by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. and others, Google has given Google News its own web crawler. The service had previously relied on the same web crawler that is used to index pages for regular web search. This change allows publishers to use robots.txt to finely control how Google News indexes their content without affecting how it is indexed for normal Google web searches. Before this change occurred, publishers could have contacted Google to specifically de-index content from Google News."

Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.
