disallowing a variable KevinC msg:3783672 8:57 pm on Nov 10, 2008 (gmt 0) disallow: /*?PageAction=EMAILFRIEND
just a quick question about the above? I want to disallow the "emailfriend" variable but not the pageaction variable as I require it for other pages that I want to stay indexed.
Is the above safe to just disallow the emailfriend link?

I think I found my answer but I'm little nervous pulling the trigger.
does this look correct:
Disallow: /admin/ Disallow: /affiliatewiz/ Disallow: /eproducts/ Disallow: /themes/
User-agent: slurp User-agent: msnbot Disallow: /*EMAILFRIEND* goodroi msg:3784071 12:40 pm on Nov 11, 2008 (gmt 0)
that should work. be aware that wildcards are not official parts of robots.txt protocol. they are special allowances provided by the big search engines. be careful and keep and eye on it just to be safe. KevinC msg:3788301 10:37 pm on Nov 17, 2008 (gmt 0)
thanks a lot, I have it in place and so far no issues.
