We have added NoFollow and NONE tags in the Meta description of these pages but that does not stop them from linking to their store running off our website. Allowing the page to be found by a spider.. I doubt willingly that any of our affiliates would want to add in a no follow tag to all links going to their store on our site.
So here is my problem.. how do I get MSN Live to ignore links from my partners to their store hosted on my site? Google ignores these links but Live and Yahoo don’t..
Could it be as simple as adding in the robots.txt file ( disallow: /*affiliateid )?
Or would I need to create a spider only 301 redirect or 404?
setup has hosted affiliate stores run off our own store

The stores are our own private server with our url and their affilate id in that url.
Basicly our partner url would look like this.
We use no index meta tags on the stores and that stops google and yahoo from seeing these sites but what MSN picks up is the actual link and not the content.
So if i did a search for Blue Widgets
the result would show
the noindex prevented MSN from actually displaying any information of the page but it still uses the link in the index.
How do i get MSN to stop this behavior?
