i want to rebuild my website now, change the focus there a bit and also make sure that google and bing can only scrape those images i want them to scrape
I work with wordpress and multiple image folders are not too easy too handle i fear. So far i used its standard upload system.
I bet it was mentioned before but can someone please give me the robot.txt code i would need for google and bing to
allow the standard folder "images" but disallow the folder "fullsizedimages"
I am using a fanshare similar solution (without any watermarks and texts directly on the images though) now btw but the results are not really breathtaking. I lost over 70% traffic to the google image search changed and gained back only around 15% of them after enabling the fanshare similar solution.
In the future i won't make images available above 400 pixels width. I also remove the whole 25000 older images from my website now so they will be removed from google soon too. And hope many other webmasters do so as well and find solutions.
Guys, we have to care about our content now like only the music and movie industry before.
