    From indexing certain pages of your site?

    Question...what does this imply? I think I more or less understand a lot of it except this.

    The robots.txt file should be created in Unix line ender mode! Most good text editors will have a Unix mode or your FTP client *should* do the conversion for you

    Unix and windows have different ways of determining a new line. For example in PHP unix/linux will understand \n for newline but windows needs \r\n (if i remember correctly!).

    You don't need to worry about this when ur dealing with robots.txt, it's a programming issue. Ur ftp client will sort it.

    Could you also use this or is it not a very reliable way to block pages from being crawled?
