Ok so I've noticed an annoying thing lately. Google is caching my "printer friendly" pages which is allowing people to view content at google, without all of the surrounding blocks and header that make up my page. This includes avertisement blocks.
I have alot of "guides", FAQ's and otherwise important content i dont mine people accessing via the normal page fetch process as it shows my advertisers info... but google's caching of the printer friendly page allows people to access my content while avoiding the advertisers.
Any recommended methods to counter this? Maybe add
<meta name="robots" content="noarchive">
to the header of the printer friendly pages? Eliminate the printer friendly link all together? I'd hate to do that but I'd rather do that then let Google freeload off my content.
