    robots.txt to stop google images?

    I have this:
    User-agent: Googlebot-Image
    Disallow: /

    What am I missing? Does this stop google images from any subsequent indexes or does it stop immediately? I'm thinking it stops subsequent indexes but I have had this in place for months now and I am still getting google images using my bandwidth..

    Can;t post links, but, go to google and run a search for the following:

    google stop indexing robots

    There will be a link to the google webmasters area. There is an entire page there about robots and disallowing information to be indexed.

    You did it right, though...now, it becomes a waiting game. Personal experience...it is quicker and easier to get the initial crawl, than recrawls.

    Has the bot been back? In the server/account logs?

    Check that out and it is a good indicator of it being there scooping your links up.

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /cgi-bin/
    Disallow: /images/

    Might as well stop all SE Bots from indexing your images.

    To remove all the images on your site from our index, place the following robots.txt file in your server root:

    User-agent: Googlebot-Image
    Disallow: /

    According to google that should it work http://books.google.com/webmasters/remove.html
