Example robots.txt for WordPress and PHPBB3

Posted: August 7, 2009 at 7:03 pm by

I have just finished retooling the robots.txt file I will now be using. It includes both wordpress and phpBB3. I took wordpress’s suggested robots.txt file, added in a few more directories, added in the sitemap reference, and added in the phpbb3 section. I am not sure how good it will preform, however if changes are made, I will note them. If you have any comments, or suggestions, let me know.

Remove Old Links from Google

Posted: August 7, 2009 at 6:00 pm by

After looking into Search Engine Optimization, I have learned the hard way on how to best create a website. Search engines, especially Google, begin indexing your site once your site exists on the Internet. It does not matter if you are done or not, Google’s spiders still come and index what is there. This means content your not ready for the world to see will appear in search engines, leading people to a unfinished website. Once your site does go live, your site’s listing in Google will contain many broken or out of date links, which will make your site look bad to both Google and your intended users. How do we remove those old links from Google, so we only have relevant links, which improve our rankings?
