Unfortunately, I do not.

1) The sitemap.xml was incorrect for several of the lists (not this one) which may have lead to errors
2) Robots.txt was present at some point and removed prior to the migration
3) A version of hypermail included NOINDEX via a meta tag

Finally, there may also be crawl errors. Next week that data will populate for Ciere’s account “ownership” of the site and we can confirm or rule out that state.
