I'm not understanding the different makes of bots

Can I stop some, while allowing others?

Hi. Is there a way I can stop Google from crawling a site and still allow other bots (Yahoo, MSN) to crawl?
Thanks.

Sure thing - just add this to your robots.txt file in your document root:

User-agent: Googlebot 
Disallow: /

That will stop Googlebot, but not the others.
