About 5 months ago I added a line to my robots.txt file to stop google from indexing a page. However, this page still exists in Google and googlebot comes and grabs the page every day. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Below is my robots.txt file:

User-agent: *
Disallow: PageA.asp

Hi jchance,

Should you not have a forward slash in front of the disallowed page?

User-agent: *
Disallow: /PageA.asp

Apart from that am at a loss :(

Or maybe you put the robots.txt file in a directory other than your root web directory.
