The Google robots.txt file now includes the line
   Disallow: /c/

What could google.com/c/ be? (It's a file not found at this time.)

/a is for apps

take a look at blog.case.edu/jms18/2006/08/30 ...

Google only has one robots.txt file which they use on all their domains so I guess its to do with the Case Western login.

Martin, isn't the URL mentioned in that post just hypothetical?

mail.google.com/c/case.edu doesn't seem to work right now and I can't find any evidence to suggest that /c is where Google have hosted Apps accounts, either education or otherwise. (That post is over 6 months old though.)

mail.google.com/a/case.edu – on the other hand – works fine.

He wanted to say that he saw it on the robots.txt file but was late to report it here.
