So today I noticed some prying eyes had been meandering through my /Templates/ and /Library/ folders of a site. To keep people out of these folders I put in an index.html file that redirects them to f--ckyou.com (for a little humor bonus).
My question is this. Will any of the SEs pick up these files and deem me an adult site or mess with my rankings in any way?
For those how wish to take a look (I thought it was funny). go to
Warning: It is an adult site you will be redirected to.
<no way - no how do we do adult redirects or urls>

There are other ways that you can keep people out of your files and folders besides redirecting them to a page. I know for one, if I was redirected to that page that you created, it would only make me work harder to get into those files and folders.
Instead, you can make these pages and folders only available to users coming from a certain IP (yours).
Try to make these files and folders more secure.
Although, for curiosities sake. No one has answered my original question
USing this will stop the SE's from spidering the pages as well so that will not be a big deal... Don't think you will get banned if the dir are protected with htaccess
