Stack Exchange's robots.txt includes the existing short links URLs starting with /q/ and /u/, but hasn't been updated to include the new referral short links for answers starting with /a/.

  • Yikes. Google indexed a lot of these: inurl:http://stackoverflow.com/a/. Fortunately I don't think they come up too easily in normal search results. – Cascabel Dec 9 '11 at 18:34
  • Oh, my bad - those results aren't actually indexed. Google just knows they exist. – Cascabel Dec 9 '11 at 18:42

Oh, nice catch, thanks! Added to the next build.
