Chapter 82. Blocking Parts of Your Site from Search Engines

It may seem counterintuitive to want to restrict search engines from any part of your site. You probably take great pains to get your site listed on as many search engines as possible. But follow the logic here: Maybe you want to control exactly how a visitor finds your site. You would rather new visitors come in by the front page, say, instead of some page three levels deep. Or maybe you don't want visitors to come in on a page that is supposed to be a popup window, where you may not offer the full range of navigation choices. The more you think about it, the more restricting certain areas from search engines makes good sense.
