    Hi everyone, and special greetings to Raven who I know is reading this.

    My problem is that I need google to not find a certain subdirectory of a website.

    If I remember correctly there was some way using metadata, but, surprisingly, google didn't help much ;)

    However, that would not be a very good solution, since it is a test directory and I'd like to be able to move the pages to the real folder without changes.

    Would .htaccess keep google away efficiently?

    Regards,
    o/

    I usually just put a password on directories I don't want google to get access to, or keep the url off of webpages... Which I tried with the Dresden files but some cuntfuck decided they were gonna post the link and let google harvest it. =_=
