    Threads with domains for sale are still getting spidered and cached in google, is this supposed to be still happening? it kind of makes resale a little difficult when the possible buyer sees what you bought it for.

    I think the only way to stop it would be to make the forums non-viewable to non-members.

    Perhaps you could look at deleting posts in the sales area that are over xx days old? That way you'd still benefit from SE traffic but unless a domain is being turned around in a matter of days it would'nt cause the problem lee mentions.

    Fair point, but i'd imagine that if you restrict robots from the sales threads you'll lose a fair few SE visitors........

    I would say go the noarchive route if possible. Guests to this forum are going to be potential buyers i would have thought!

    Agreed with Murph

    I had a newbie yesterday 1 poster after a member of here - he was wanting to rent a name!

    I passed on the info and they have both now done deals...

    Not sure how we can get round this...
