    I saw this tread on another forum, but not one answered they guy. Thought I'd asked the question here:

    I'm thinking of using this as my robots.txt:

    User-agent: Googlebot
    Disallow: /

    User-agent: Googlebot-Image
    Disallow: /

    User-agent: msnbot
    Disallow: /

    User-agent: Slurp
    Disallow: /

    User-agent: yahoo-mmcrawler
    Disallow: /

    User-agent: yahoo-blogs/v3.9
    Disallow: /

    The reason is in order Google, Yahoo, and MSN bot cannot index my page, but the adwords bot (AdsBot-Google) and other PPC bot can. This is for A/B testing, also with SPPC we get tons of different LP version if you make the LP dynamic. I'm thinking if my content get indexed it may lower my QS. Is this the right move?


    ==========================================================

    Also, what about stopping the AdsBot-Google (adwords bot) when putting up a campaign...would this lower your QS?

    Yeah,

    I understand how to stop the bot. Just wondering if anyone else has and did they see a drop in their quality scoring. I'm about to put up a campaign and I'm curious to if I should even try to go this route.
