    I use a lot of Wordpress plugins on my blogs.
    I've spent ages testing/tweaking them to ensure a suitable SEO efficiency:Time to Load ratio.
    I've got it right now but short of not telling my competitors the names of my sites, is there anyway that i can prevent them from viewing the source code of my pages to ID which plugins i have installed?

    Just to clarify, i don't care if Big G's spiders can see my plugins & knows which ones i have installed, it's just the humans i want to hide them from?

    Therefore just adding a bunch of entries on the robot.txt file won't be enough. I suggest placing an .htaccess file with specific directives (according to what you want to hide...). For instance, for WPRobot you can start here:

    Hmm, I don't think so. Now, depends on your plugins...
