I asked a question here a few weeks ago about how to block Google Imagebot. I do not want all of my hard work displayed in Google Images for anyone to take.
I handwrote the robot text, here:
Note that in the robots text I used the word uploads instead of images, because I think that’s how WordPress files images – that only took me a week to discover.
Before this robots text, I had been using the XML Sitemap plugin for WordPress, which did an excellent job.
But now, my images are no longer collected by Google, but I think my posts are not being indexed, either!
I still have the xml plugin enabled, but I unchecked the box which says: Add Sitemap url to the virtual robots file. But maybe there is still a conflict between my robot and the xml plugin?
Can you please help me enable my posts to be found by Google, without images being scanned? Thank you.
