robots.txt Sample File

for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2

A robots.txt file lets search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc) know which pages on your site you don't want them to index. This is helpful in keeping them from going to pages that will confuse them and/or won't provide any added benefit to you from having indexed. Since nobody has put one in here before, I've put together a simple version you can simply copy into your web site's root directory (usually called "public_html" or "httpdocs" or "www"). Once you've copied the file into place and made any desired changes, you're done.
