Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I'm using the rd_rss component with the Joomla CMS to produce rss feeds. I do not want the search engines to index my feeds - I'm a bit worried about duplicate content issues. I'd like to do the following and hope you can tell me if I am on the right track.
1: Disallow: index.php?option=com_rd_rss&id=4 in the robots.txt file -should I specify the file exactly like this?
2: add rel="nofollow" on all internal site links to my feeds
3: somehow add <meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" /> to the xml feed itself - can I mix a meta tag with the xml rss feed and will this work?
Should I xsl style the xml or make the feed HTML just in case a search engine indexes the feed and a user clicks into the feed?
Thaks for any advice
