MsnBot Indexing

I have a poll on my website from [SNIP]. It has a text on the poll. MSNBOT is indexing that text and showing on the search results. Is there any way I can exclude msnbot indexing the text of the poll? Is there anyway I can manupalate the robots.txt?

Hi Smalldude,
Thanks for the note!

At this point there is no way to specifically say "do not index this piece of text". Something you could consider doing is only putting the survey on a specific set of pages and then using a robots.txt to block that set of pages.

Hope this helps.

I've tried to submit .xml (google sitemap compatible) file to MSN hoping that it will follow the links in the .xml files....

Apparently, MSN bot is not that smart enough to do that.

Any suggestion on how to submit multiple pages in the the same site to MSN?

Thanks in advanced
