|Google spidering past secure server|
Robots.txt file to boot the bot?
The Googlebot has been spidering my client's site, which is hosted on a secure server (string begins with HTTPS), and the legal team wants it out of there.
Anything besides a robots.txt to get rid of Googlebot?
According to some just put in some hidden text and your gone!
Just kidding, it almost sounds to me like you need to contact them via this url, and explain the reason in the form box.
There is some great information on that page.
Not sure if that helps or not.
You could secure it with a password?...but that's beyond my post.
My second thought about this is: If it's really secure and googlebot can spider it...is it really secure?
