Question 4 Wordpress File's Link To Be Blocked

Hi there,

When I do a search (Googling) using the code "site:example.com" on my domain, I found several links which seems to be not appropriate for Google to index it, according to the one who reviewed my site on my request.

That particular person has suggested me to block some files' link in my wordpress blog on my domain.

Examples of those links :
1) http://www.example.com/blog/feed
2) http://www.example.com/blog/wp-login.php
3) http://www.example.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword
4) http://www.example.com/blog/wp-login...ction=register

How should I block those links from being indexed by Google or any other robots ?

I do know how to block a folder from being index, but I do not know how to block a file's link from being indexed.

Thanks in advance for your help.

robots.txt

I saw this link provided in another thread a few days ago. Seems to have good info on how to utilize robots.txt for excluding directories and pages along with a good primer on how it works.

Thanks, Starlab.

That was a helpful site for sure. But then, I can't find the answer that I need too, in the link that you've provided.

I need to block only several files , rather than blocking a whole directory.

Anyway, thanks for your help

If you go to the bottom of THIS PAGE, it shows you how to specify files...

Yes , I saw that too just now. But I am still hesitating , as that action or that method will really help me to block all the robots from indexing my particular file. LOL ..

Anyway, thanks again for your reply. I will shoot a question in the Google indexing help page regarding this method too, thanks for that any way.

Ok, I have double checked externally, with some other forum's expert on this, and they told me it works, like what you've pointed out, Starlab.

Thanks for that. It helps a lot.

Have a nice day
