Excluding Images from Google Index Robot.txt File not Keeping Google out of my Image Folders hermosa
So, how do I do it? There must be a way. I have tested the robot.txt file and the format is fine. I would like to keep search engines out of all of my image folders.
By coincidence I was also looking for a solution to this just yesterday so I would be interested in the answer. I have a copyright issue with an image, which I changed on the website but G images is still showing the original image. [

Google now supports the wildcard(*)...
So you could do something like:
However, this is only for googlebot/yahoobot for the moment. MSN does not support wildcards (to my knowledge)..
It is always best to move all your images into a single directory and then do something like:
Hope this helps...
G Images hasn't been updated for months. Nothing comes in, nothing is being dropped, positions stay the same.
But perhaps because of this, now is a good opportunity to test this, for i don't think it'll take much longer till the next update...
Which probably holds many surprises for us... the site that has redirected all non-www's and since then found out that 60% of the pics were crawled as such :P
