[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Blocking search engines for subdomains (www1., dev., etc) (1 post)

    Hey Joost, I was wondering if you ever thought about adding an easy way to block indexing of whole subdomains into your plugin.

    Let me explain the use cases:
    1. I have server_aliases like www1 and www2, which has now started appearing in Google - they refer to individual servers in a multi-server setup, and should never be exposed to the public.
    2. Server copies that are used for development, like staging.SITENAME.com or dev.SITENAME.com should also never be spidered.

    If there was a way to whitelist just http://www.SITENAME.com and SITENAME.com and have noindex and nofollow or a robots.txt that blocks everything on all other subdomains, that'd be super.

    Appreciate your thoughts on solving this best or the chances of having this feature added to the plugin.
