Protecting Sensitive Information from Search Engines:

It is important to prevent external search engines from indexing sensitive information. There are several options:

  • Don't put the files on a web server in the first place, although this might not suit your business needs, so
  • Don't make the files available to everyone - email Web Services to ask for a secure web area
  • Server administrators can use a robots.txt file to prevent search engines indexing information
  • Web developers use a special meta tag in their web page.

If you have any questions about the University Search Engine, please email Web Services
