User-agent *
Disallow: /dynamicpage.asp

is this going to be enough to exclude robots from a dynamic page?

it will stop any robots that obey robots.txt. If you want to do any more you will need to look at htaccess.

Nope, just google mainly :) Maybe I need to clarify,

Is this:

User-agent *
Disallow: /dynamicpage.asp

Going to stop a robot that obeys robots.txt indexing something like this: dynamicpage.asp?something=something

I'm assuming that it will, but just want to make sure. Thanks.

TheDave,

That may not stop anything at all... But hopefully, the missing ":" after "User-agent" was a typo. :)

User-agent: *
Disallow: /dynamicpage.asp

Will stop any robot that obeys robots.txt from indexing something like this: dynamicpage.asp?anything
