We build websites, and when its CMS implementation time, we'd love to do that online, because we work in a team. But no matter what we try, our temp domains always get indexed in Google (haven't checked yahoo or MSN).
So far, our development domains are armed with:
a robots.txt file that totally disallowes any access to any folder:
We added meta tags:
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow" />
<meta name="expired" content="01-01-2001" />
But what else can we do? Please advice, we had a mad client who noticed a site in development in the search engines, which make us look like a bunch of kiddies that don't know what we're doing, and to be honest: that's correct
I have no clue how to stop this, can anybody please help me with this one? Much appreciated.
