No indexing Subdomain

Hi @jnugent @asmecher

On a daily basis, I make changes to the subdomain of the site and I do not want it to be indexed by Google scholar, what do I do ???

:stop_sign: It is an emergency. :stop_sign:

Hi @jnugent

You have changed the “robot.txt” file in a subdomain.

Old “robot.txt” file:
User-agent: *
Disallow: / cache /

The new “robot.txt” file:
User-agent: *
Disallow: /

But I’m not sure, if it does really work.

help me please.

Yes… it will tell Google crawler to AVOID indexing your site, but you will need to wait till google visit your site again and data will be kept in google’s cache.

To speed up the process (and better control) I recommend you search “how to remove my site from google” so you can find topics like those:

But please, notice this is not a OJS related issue, so I encourage you look for help in specialized forums.
