Google MBD

Google changed their robots.txt and included entries for finance, extern_js and MBD.

Old robots : 72.14.203.104/search?q=cache:4 ...

New robots : www.google.com/robots.txt

It's weird to see that www.google.com/mbd resolves correctly. Google actually serves a blank page.

What could mean MBD? Maybe "million barrels per day", or "minimal brain dysfunction"? Don't think so. Maybe Google Embed, a service that lets you create mashups using Google services.

Update: Peter Dawson suggests in Blogoscoped Forum that the acronym may mean "medical and biological database".
