An interesting quote from the article by Google: 'We define public as anything placed on the public Internet and not blocked to search engines in any way. The primary burden falls to the people who are incorrectly exposing this information. But at the same time, we're certainly aware of the problem, and our development team is exploring different solutions behind the scenes.'"
As the article outlines, this has been a problem for a long time -- and with no easy solution in sight.
