05Aug03 - Brian Theado - I was trying to do a site:mini.net search on Google to search this wiki and it came back with empty results. Is the wiki purposefully being blocked from search engine spidering or is it something else? Even searching for "Tclers Wiki" doesn't return mini.net (http://www.google.com/search?q=Tclers+wiki).

[LV : 2005 Sep 30 - I checked today and searching for tclers wiki does return results... just not mini.net. So technically, the title of this page is false. The wiki is found on google - just in a different manner than in the old days.]

29May04 - Brian Theado - Using 'site:wiki.tcl.tk' instead of 'site:mini.net' seems to fix the problems I mention below. I.e http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Awiki.tcl.tk+prototype

Yes, this is the proper search pattern now. The mini.net domain has areas such as tclhist and tclrevs which are not indexed by Google, so turning off all indexing was the cleanest way - but wiki.tcl.tk is Google's friend! -jcw

RS: Also, the Wiki can search itself - I just use http://wiki.tcl.tk/whatever to search for whatever.

LV or use http://wiki.tcl.tk/whatever .

LES: But that will look for whatever in page titles. Use http://mini.net/tcl/2?whatever* to look for whatever in the pages' content.

LV or use http://wiki.tcl.tk/whatever* .

More recent, but similar: Tcl/Tk Wiki not found from Google anymore!
