It's that time of the week again... this line in Google's robots.txt seems to be new:

Disallow: /aclk

google.com/aclk

Any explanations?

GTalk? For a dyslexic perhaps...
And no, "aclk " is not a Google service name James.

[put at-character here] James
The forum rules state "The forum is English-only" so technically we can speak in UK English if we want :D

Something I made a few years ago:

So where's the First Floor?

I keep forgetting how to differentiate between UK and US English when I get updating Wikipedia pages.

"The forum rules state "The forum is English-only" so technically we can speak in Real English if we want :D"

Fixed :D

I keep having people complain about my WP edits being in English as opposed to American. Its habit I guess, I'd like to see an American try and spell their words slightly different when using a specific website and not make mistakes.

Yes that's what I meant but wasn't brave enough to say it :D

google.com/aclk returns a blank page.

Google search on this leads to
  
inurl:"google.com/aclk"

www.google.com/aclk/googlewatchblog

Weird. Let me try link to somewhere else there, maybe it will soon show up the same way:
google.com/aclk/foobar

sorry forgot to add this
inurl:"google.com/aclk",after search button is clicked.it should show
"check in the omitted results".
click on the link it shows the below link
www.google.com/aclk/googlewatchblog
   and not this link google.com/aclk/foobar

> and not this link google.com/aclk/foobar

Yes, the foobar link is just my test case. Assumption: since the domain is disallowed via robots.txt, anyone can link to it using any URL and Google will show it in the SERPs after a while...
