  • can i block google from my web site?

    Is there a way to block google from using my web site stuff in there search results? The reason I ask is that all the bandwidth and my stats go back to google...when I really just want my stuff for my fellow gamers at select web sites and of course other family and friends...

    just wondering.

    hmm. Interesting question... I would think there would be ways to decrease the chance that you came up in a search... some clarification to what stats you are refering to and what exactly it is you're trying to accomplish would be helpful.. though I don't know if I would have an answer, but i might. Provide a few more details.

      I think the Google bot respects robots.txt.

        well on my stat page it tells me what files, videos, pictures are most popular, the site that had the interest along with the thread of intrest... a good tool to see whats popular, whats not, so I can upload new stuff of intrest... it use to be almost exclusively from threads here at TG and SimHQ, along with a few other forums I participate in... now it's all google.

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robots_Exclusion_Standard has information about how to keep Google and other spiders from indexing your site; as far as blocking Google users, you'll have to filter by the referrer field. This could be simple or difficult depending on the stuff you use to run the server.
