no indexing at all

Hello David,

I have a question.

Everything that is generated by the PTO script (wp-version) i don't want it to be automatically indexed in the search engines. Thus no-index regarding all content generated by the PTO-script and "follow" option.

How can i accomplish this? Must this be done by not registering the sitemap? Or must i tweak the PTO script-code somewhere?

Hope you can help me out what do.

Thanks for now!

Hi jbdob,

All you should need to do is disallow the generated pages through your robots.txt file, so if using the default settings, this would be simply:

User-Agent: *
Disallow: /shopping
Disallow: /merchant
Disallow: /category
Disallow: /brand
Disallow: /product
Disallow: /review

The Disallows correspond to your Virtual settings for Merchant / Category / Brand / Product / Review Base HREF settings in wp-admin > Settings > respectively...

Don't register your generated sitemap with any search engines as it's not defined anywhere other than perhaps within individual search engine's own policies whether having registered a sitemap overrides robots.txt or not!

Hope this helps!
