Google blogsearch getting fixed (slowly)

Everyone I know who complained directly to Google has had their journal removed from the blogsearch index. For everyone else, it will take up to a week to get the entries removed. Grump.

LJ's Official Statement on the Blogsearch problem

Dear user,

LiveJournal's administrators have been communicating with Google, and have discovered that Google does indeed intend to respect the "block robots/spiders" information provided in your journal, even though it is not explicitly provided in the RSS data feed. They have notified us to indicate that any entries archived despite the option being enabled should not have been archived. They will resolve this matter within the next week.

If, after that time, your entries are still archived with Google, you will need to speak with them for further assistance.
