My site's home page is www.site.com/widget/index.html.
I have a 301 redirect from www.site.com/brand to the real home page (this is the URL on my business card).

Now Google has indexed www.site.com/brand as well as www.site.com/widget/index.html, which is a bad thing.

How can I correct that? I was thinking of putting the following robots.txt:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /brand

Would that work?

I wouldn't put that line. Just make sure that you have the redirect set up correctly.

If you did add that line, robots wouldn't be able to "see" the redirect.
