    Banning Alexa Robot

    How can I ban the Alexa robot from going through my sites? It gobbles up bandwidth for no percieveable benefit?

    Can I simply use the robots.txt ?

    Are there any downsides that I am missing if I do this?

    Would it be better to limit it just to say the front page. If so, how can I best do this?

    Yes, use robots.txt to ban ia_archiver from parts of (or all of) your site. The downside, of course, is that you won't get indexed by Alexa
