I have setup my robots.txt like this :
User-agent: *Disallow: /umbraco/
However, the pictures are not parsed by google bot. I guess it's because Imagegen is in the /umbraco folder which is deny.
So i added at the end
but it still doesn't work.
Any ideas ?
Thank you very much
If you use a newer version of ImageGen you'll find it installs into the root of your site at /imagegen.ashx so you won't have to worry about disallowing /umbraco/ folder.
I'm no expert on what google does and doesn't parse but it might be that Google just doesn't parse ashx files with querystring params. Or maybe they do. I don't know. Maybe someone else does. Or a search online to find the answer to what Google does and doesn't do. Do let us know what you find out.
I have put an HttpModule to load ImageGen so google does not see /ImageGen.ashx?... but it sees /images/myimage?width=xxx
You can find an example of it in uBootstrap source code.
I have modified the version of uBootstrap to not check the physical existence of the file in the module for performance reason.
