Support » Networking WordPress » Subsites pages indexed by Google as main site's pages

  • Hi,

    I have a multisite install, let’s say I have some subsites, with domain mapping. Let’s say the subsite “subsite1” is mapped to

    I’ve noticed that, although I have domain mapping all the websites in the multisite network (subfolder install), the subsites appear in the google index for the main site.

    That is, if I type in google: (the main site for the network), in the results I see something like this: the subsite mapped to

    How can I prevent this? I don’t want the subsites appear as being pages from the main’s website.

    Including “Disallow: /subsite1/” in robots.txt is a good idea?
    Will it prevent the mapped subsite to be indexed? Will it hurt their SEO?

    Thanks in advance.

    PS: the subsites in the mapped domains are indexed ok. That is, the query returns all the pages in the subsite. This is not a problem.
