    Phantom https Pages

    Sitepoint Members,
    A while back I accidentally typed the adress in a link to another page of mine as https://... instead of http:// and a while back I fixed it (like 6 months ago). Recently I typed into goog;le site:mysite.com. The last page in googe's list is https://mysite.com/~usernsame-for-my...-my-pages.html. (That tilda is literally in therre). I don't have a folder named ~usernsame-for-my-webhost-account nor a folder even rmotely named ~usernsame-for-my-webhost-account. I tried using google's webmaster tools to remove the page from it's index but it only accepts requests on http pages, not https pages. So I put in my robots.txt Disallow: /~usernsame-for-my-webhost-account/. Is that the way to fix this problem?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I guess it is; the phantom page is gone. I didn't think search engines look at https and http as the same.
