Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52

I currently am using htaccess to cause a jump into a part of my site that is excluded from search robots etc.
This means the root: www.my_url.com/index.htm is redundant for the purposes of the search bot because the htaccess file grabs it first.
The trouble is I ONLY want the www.my_url.com/index.htm indexed.
Any help would be much appreciated.
I found this forum by accident last year, it is one of the better ones, thanks.
I have implemented the "perfect .htaccess banlist recently, still testing it.." [webmasterworld.com...]
Kind regards, Steve

sorry about that, I'd be happy if the post was deleted.
the re-direction... is dynamic using an error 404 trap, so it can go anywhere depending on the suffix at the end og the url so your_url/abc goes one place and your_url/xyz goes someplace else.
If the index.htm in the site root is bypassed because of what I have in my .htaccess there probably isn't much I can do without changing the set-up, unless the robot was to ask for your_url/index.htm instead of your_url period.
the htaccess will leave alone any request with a file specified.
