My website posts are not date-based. Actually, I have replaced date stamps with category images. The only thing that needs improvement are the archives.
I understand that they are not duplicating content, but they ARE getting indexed by bots. I have installed Platinum SEO plugin but it didn't fix it. I have doublechecked all possible options through the dashboard, that refer to archives.
Robots.txt is taken over by the XML-sitemap plugin, but I have added:
And still archives are being followed and indexed.
Is there a way to just disable archives totally?
First, I don't need them at all since my website shows all the posts in the sidebar (through neat and expendable tree). Second, I don't want them to get indexed and followed.
Thanks for help!
