old.bewelcome.org indexed in google

Reported by: jeanyves Owned by: jeanyves
Priority: critical Milestone: Legacy Resolved
Component: FrameWork Keywords: google old.bewselcome.org

Description

I just saw that old.bewelcome is indexed in google.

This is a big problem because it will create confusion within our links. I am going to edit it online to add a META noindex nofollow (I will find the proper syntax)

could some people with robot.txt knowledge had exclusion in old.bw ?

We must not disable the old.bw for now, we are to wait several weeks before various search engine have seen in a clean way that they are not to index old.bewelcome

I have added in the old header.php a : echo " <meta name=\"ROBOTS\" content=\"NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW,NOCOUNT,NOARCHIVE\" />\n" ;

are their other places where it is to be done in some PT generic header

Nota : for future, we should have these kind of Meta automatically added if the current domain name is not www.bewelcome.org

I also added it into templates/page.php

additional problem :

I browsed google for site:test.bewelcome.org and discover that several playground page were indexed here, could it be possible to add a general exclusion in test ?

In the same way, trac is indexed in google, I don't think this is a good idea (it will create competitor pages with the bewelcome ones) site:https://www.bevolunteer.org/trac

Agree with everything about test/alpha/old.bw

Why do you think that dev.bw / bw/trac should not be indexed? Imho it is very good that it is indexed as it draws attention of potential developers.

and blogs.bewelcome.org/* must be indexed by google as well

  • freq_reported set to 1
  • Milestone changed from unassigned to BigPicture
  • show_on_bw set to 0

Still 4 Playground (test.bewelcome.org) links and serval trac links are found in google. What is the state of the trac indexing? Is it wished oder not?

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by philipp

indexing of trac is wanted.

indexing of test.bw is NOT wanted
