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 supported by select mobile carriers and is
not available from your mobile carrier." are we not denying people
knowledge and going against our mission? Should this not redirect or
at least be a message pointing to the actual content?

Also if we block google from indexing zero any links shared on the
zero domain will not contribute to the page ranking of that page which
seems a bit dumb...

As I mentioned the fact that pages are currently in google results is
only a temporary problem due to an upstream bug [2] in the
MobileFrontend extension which should resolve itself as the cache is
cleared.
