It had a default setting of:
"I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors"
This wasn't in the last version I installed so just thought I'd mention it lest anyone else be installing or upgrading
As mentioned this is selected as the default setting and bans technorati etc as well as all search engines.
A strange and worrying default setting which I presume has some legal better-safe-than-sorry reason behind it
I wonder how many are sat there wondering why they're not doing very well in search engines!
I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Sphere, Technorati) and archivers
I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors
In this option do they limit crawling of only top search engines, and disallowing everyone else?
If that's the case then it is a very shortsighted move, especially with default as described above.
