    Stopping Bots using my website search function


    I have the google search application on my website and at the moment I would like to stop the bots from using this search function and so potentially indexing these pages.

    Is there something I can add to the page template that will stop the bots from using the search and so indexing the page???

    Cheers

    Perhaps add a meta noindex in your template
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex" />
    Or add a line to your robots.txt file to restrict bots from this file/directory
