I've just searched Google for some relevant phrases, and plenty of
your normal pages came up in the results.

I think part of the problem might be that you have a much better
content:markup ratio happening on the print pages, because you loose
the clutter of the navigation.

Slightly curious as to why you even need an alternative version of the
page, when a simple print stylesheet will hide the irrelevant content
just fine, without requiring a whole set of duplicate pages.
