Google and Yahoo has been bringing lots of visitors to this site, but sometimes I wish they don't land on this site from these query. What troubles me is search engine spiders indexing my everyday life - something that probably won't edify anyone but my own ego. I don't want you to go and search your name on Google, and then find it appears in one of my whinging/ranting/raging pages.
So my goal is - stop the search engine spiders indexing all individual archives that belong to my life category. The implementation is surprisingly easy for a Movable Type installation.
- Install Regex and Supplemental Category Tags from Brad Choate's site.
- In my individual archive template, add the following lines in the <head /> section of HTML.
<MTIfCategory name="Life"> <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow" /> </MTIfCategory>
- Rebuild all the individual pages.
- The next step is a bit difficult - waiting for the mighty Google to start dancing (if it still exists)!!
