    Right i have a website that is in 7 languages.

    i have submitted each language to webmaster tools as a separate site targeted geographically for the country except the root which is English & worldwide.

    each site is hxxp://-------------/en/ hxxp://-------------/bg/ etc

    i was trying to block Google from viewing the directories for all the languages except the English site so that i can track each language results separately.

    i figured a separate robots.txt in each directory would work but the robots from the root domain took over for all.

    Any suggestions how to do this or another alternative?

    I think i should i have set them up as sub domains but this would require a lot of effort to change as i designed the site fully myself & there is 120+ pages - no wordpress :(
