(cross-posted on mobile-l) Update: I have been checking on the indexed link count over the last couple of months, and it has been roughly constant. Upon another check in the past week, it looked like it was time to go ahead with the robots.txt update. Just yesterday, the start of a robots.txt

(cross-posted on mobile-l) Okay, looks like the index of zero.wikipedia.org pages in Google has shrunk by some 20 million entries. Nonetheless, a number of really old pages (e.g., going back to 6-May-2013) are still in the Google index with article text. I'll set a reminder to check on the Google

As I mentioned on the bug report [1] I worry more about the fact that the content is not accessible to users on another IP. If a user of Wikipedia Zero shares a link do we not want that to be accessible to other people? By showing a message as we currently do Sorry, zero.wikipedia.org is only

Hello All, We had shelved my patch, patch 64629 https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/64629, in hopes that an earlier patch, patch 61809https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/61809(bug 35233 https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35233), would resolve the issue naturally as Google re-indexed. But it
