Good to know:)
Also great information.
jomaxx, you said you put affiliate redirects under a single subdirectory and then block that subdirectory in the robots.txt file.
Q.1. In the robots.txt file, how would you set it to block the directory? The exact code.
Q.2. Also, if using a .htaccess file with the redirect, do i need to use the robots.txt file also?
Q.3. you said subdirectory. I'm not to certain on how to create this. I just use 1 directory for one site i have.
->Do i just create a separate directory and name it redirects?
-->Or is this subdirectory created in the area where the site resides (all files of the specific site.) and it is a named /redirects and i place the single file named .htaccess there and no other?
Q.4. Isn't the .htaccess file hidden from robots and if so, why use a robots.txt file also?
I appreciate your continued responses:)
