robots.txt Sample File
for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2

A robots.txt file lets search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc) know which pages on your site you don't want them to index. This is helpful in keeping them from going to pages that will confuse them and/or won't provide any added benefit to you from having indexed.

Since nobody has put one in here before, I've put together a simple version you can simply copy into your web site's root directory (usually called "public_html" or "httpdocs" or "www").

Once you've copied the file into place and made any desired changes, you're done.

robots.txt 6 Mar 2008  

This robots text file will also help you by removing one way for hackers to find your images folder as a lot of stores seem to get hacked via it. It will also help hide your admin from everyone but you.

This is not earth shattering but hopefully some will find it useful. Please do not bug me with questions, it is not that hard to figure out.

Cheers
