    Ohhh exciting new feature. I can see this coming in handy for a number of clients. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, Vanessa. Time to go have a look in my GWT accounts!

    Ooh very interesting the amount of time we have spent digging into aborted refine options on big sites you would not belive.

    Vanessa, great point about excluding with the Robots file. I used the parameter tool yesterday and came to realize that I had hundreds of thousands of pages indexed that I really didn’t even imagine were being found (I thought they were behind an unindexable zip code entry wall). I’m working on an updated robots file right now.

    I’m really interested to see how this could potentially improve the crawl to the pages I want indexed more often.

    Does this feature mean that the SEO value of the dynamic URL will pass on to the static version i.e. in simple words does this feature act as a canonical tag????

    Vanessa, how long does it take Google to recognize the new settings? I made a bunch of changes 4 hours ago (mostly “What Googlebot should crawl = No URLs”), but gbot is still heavily crawling pages with those query parameters.
