Description

Earlier versions used to display a warning message in the admin area if you had your Privacy Settings set to block search engines. Looks like 3.2.1 does not show this warning.

We launched a site this afternoon after a long development period, and spent a while trying to figure out why our meta-tags said "noindex".

The admin warning message was a great enhancement. No reason it couldn't have a "dismiss" button if you don't want to see it again, but it should definitely show up by default.

See #17845

It's rather unobvious right now, It's at the bottom of the "Right Now" dashboard widget.
