    Duplicate pages aare placed in robots.txt but no decrease in indexed pages?


    Hello All,

    In my site there are 360 pages are existed and all the pages are indexed in all the search engines(Google,Yahoo & MSN), but in that 260 pages are duplicate pages, so now I have placed all those pages in robots.txt file not to crawl.

    But from the last one week number of indexed pages are not decreased from 360.Will those pages will be dropped? or Only those pages will not crawl ?

    Please let me know
