    Whats the fastest way to de-index a development site that is showing up in the SERPS? My stupid programmers forgot to password protect the page and now its showing up in the SERPS!

    Just use the noindex meta tag or do a global block via .htaccess. When the page gets re-crawled it will disappear.
