A customer called me this week and asked me how he can prevent that Google add his Sametime server to the searchengine index.

This behavior can be controlled by the robots.txt or by a robots meta tag. I offered him two options:


Option 1:

1.) Create a robots.txt with the content:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

2.) place it into the ..\data\domino\html\ folder.

For more infos see: "How to prevent a Web crawler from indexing content on your Domino server".


Option 2:

1. Open stcenter.nsf in the Domino Designer

2. Open the  form "Sametime Dynamic Home"

3. Open the object "HTML Head Content" and add the following line above the <meta content=.........> line:

4. Save and close the form.

This will add the line <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW"> to the HTML of the StCenter homepage.
