Quick question about hiding from google

  Asked By: Johanna    Date: Sep 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 957

I was just wondering how to hide my anonymous access-enabled WSS 3.0
site from google (and other search). I have a site where the top-level
is open to any user, and people don't need to login unless they are
accessing the restricted subsites. I don't, however, want anyone who
doesn't have the URL to find even the top-level site. Google is
finding it right now.

I would put in "noindex, nofollow" but I don't know how to do that in
a SharePoint page. Sorry if this one's a no-brainer. If it is, I will
gladly admit to not having a brain.

Just add a robot tag to the underlying master page  or ASPX template page in the
12 hive.

May be even easier to just a robots.txt file to the site. With this
file you can block or allow any portion of the site  you choose. See

I think I'll try the latter since it's an
externally-hosted site, and I don't have any access to the 12 hive.

I'll give it a try and see what happens.
