  • Over the last couple of days there has been a huge surge in traffic to my blog. All of this can be tracked largely to one IP address and to one post been indexed in Google Images. Is there anyway I can block being indexed in Google Images? Has anyone had this problem? Should I just let it be or can this cause issues?

  • Some people would welcome the traffic but if you wish to keep your images from being indexed by Googlebot add to your robots.txt file …

    User-agent: Googlebot-Image
    Disallow: /

    For me, putting that in my robot.txt file has not helped. I’m still able to get my site’s images in googles image search results. I even put a block in my .htaccess file with no decrease in my images being indexed.
