Saw the post on AMap over at techcrunch. Checked out the site and noticed that none of the maps were in Google’s cache.
In fact, even their home page was not there!
Checked the source and sure enough they are using:
<meta name=robots content=noindex,nofollow />
on all their pages.
Checked robots.txt and they are telling spiders to bug off:
The only page indexed by google is the home page.
Guess these arguments are intended to stay PRIVATE.
Any thoughts on what they have in mind?
