The only thing is I want this page to be accessible by my visitors but I do not want Google or other robots to index these pages. How do I allow this? I read that no index tag works but google will ignore it. Is that true? I would appreciate if somebody can advice me about this.
Thanks in advance
To be sure a page isn't included the meta noindex is the best bet. Just be sure not to also disallow the section in robots.txt as the 'bot has to be able to read the pages in order to obey the noindex.
I'd probably also slap a nofollow on it:
<META name="ROBOTS" content="NOINDEX,NOFOLLOW">
I used the generic ROBOTS instead of the specific GOOGLEBOT because, well, you know, there are other search engines out there ;-).
