  • restricting site search from board files.

    While checking a new site search engine I installed on my site (yahoo hosting that includes my Vbulletin board) I discovered that it is showing a couple of files from my board. I need to add the meta tags to stop the spider from accessing the board files <meta name=robots content=noindex>

    What file would this be best in to close off access to the board files from the site seasch engine? (I passworded the directory but in the seach page description it still shows coding, I need to use the tags).

    Very few spiders recognize the meta tag. Instead, use a robots.txt file to disallow indexing of certain files:
