    Is there anyway to hide a private blog network from competitors and not hurt ranking?

    Long-term, not really.

    Wow, a WSO! That pretty much guarantees that it's shit! :D

    Yes you can block all the trackers (moz, ahrefs, majestic, etc) via robots.txt and/or htaccess

    I am sure that it is not possible to block all the bots, just too many of them.

    But blocking all of the most well known should do the trick anyway.

    Anyone got a basic robot.txt file they can share to block the majority of these?

    I don't think it'll help. From my experience most paid services' bots ignore robots.txt, they spider your site anyway. You need to block them with .htaccess.

    Thanks mate.

    That's a seriously useful thing to know... Could be the difference between wasting thousands of dollars!

    Actually it's not, it works perfectly fine. All it does is modify the htaccess file, not too complicated.
