    Found several different ways in search to do this - but in some ways too many ways..

    What is the best way to stop any search engine from indexing anything on your site? Is it:
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex" />

    Going to do this to a brand new site so do not need to worry about history showing up.


    Thanks..

    create a robot.txt file and add the directories or pages you don't want indexed. e.g.,

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /thisdirectory
    Disallow: /thispage.html

    Edit:

    I just noticed you said anything on your site so it would be:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /
