Hi, I've tried searching for example .htaccess files and robots.txt files, but to be honest the examples I've seen have confused this simple soul until I'm not sure whether I'm coming or going.
I currently have dress business on my ".com" and I want use my ".co.uk" site for testing changes we are looking to implement.
After recently looking at the logs on my "co.uk" I see that google has been indexing our test site, so I presume we have a hit a duplicate content filter.
How do I stop bots from indexing our test site? i.e. what do i need to put into my robots.txt file or .htaccess file.
Would I be right to assume that these settings in my .htaccess file:
RedirectMatch permanent ^/$ http://www.berkswelldirect.com/cgi-bin/cp-app.cgi
RedirectMatch permanent ^/cgi-bin/cp-app.cgi$ http://www.berkswelldirect.com/cgi-bin/cp-app.cgi
RedirectMatch permanent ^/plus-size-dress(.*)$ http://www.berkswelldirect.com/plus-size-dress$1
Sorry for the direct details (think I've stopped it from creating a proper link), but I really, really don't want to get a space or character wrong.
