    I've recently (as in about half an hour ago) changed my robots.txt file to disallow everything from everywhere.
    Will this affect me pinging my blog updates? I don't want to stop weblogs.com etc from checking my blog if I can help it

    oh ok. And the reason I changed the file was in an attempt to keep the search engines away!

    Ok, then that would be the thing to do.

  4. Does your blog REALLY need Google?
    macmanx: Good point that spam bots probably don't follow the rules in robots.txt. I mean, that's kind of a forehead slapper, I suppose. ;)
