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.
