    Hello blackhatters. Apparently i've just set up a new niche site and when i entered my domain name on google i noticed that my Index of /wp-content/themes/splash/images and Index of /wp-content/themes/splash/images/prettyPhoto got indexed by google. How do i go about de-indexing my wp-content? Is this something to worry about?

    make a robots.txt and in it deny the wp-content folder to be spidered and indexed

    You need to stop search engines from crawling your wordpress folders. This can be done by editing your .htaccess file or simply uploading a robot.txt file as the above post suggested.
