Official  response from John:

We did nothing specifically to link our archives to  Google. Google  
just found us with their web crawler. The iris-talk  archives have  
always been open to the public.

I don't know  that there is anything we could do to keep any  
webcrawler out, nor  am I sure that we would want to. At the moment I  
really don't have  an opinion on the issue regardless of whether we  
could do anything  about it or not..

So, I guess it must just be coincidental that this  hit-inducing change--- 
and the resulting higher internet profile for all  posters, past and 
present--- comes to one's attention around the time the  Archives start showing a 
lot of advertising. 
Silly old me to wonder about such things. 
Thanks for the official explanation, John.
