Description

We need to block our development site from google and other search engine spiders. Members report finding the site in google searches.

History

#1 Updated by Matt Gold over 12 years ago

Zach reports that they placed a robots.txt file on the Dev site long ago, but google doesn't seem to be recognizing it. As a result, they will edit the htaccess file so that people will need a user/pass to access the site. Zach will communicate directly with the Dev team when this is up to share this info.

I've also excluded the dev site from the Google CSE we're using on the production site as an extra short-term measure.

Lucas has password-protected the dev site, so I'm closing this ticket. Thanks, Zach and Lucas.
