disallowing robots on talk pages and deletion and "meta" talk pages pages in de.wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: arnomane

Please add the content of the following attached file for de.wikipedia robots.txt under "User-agent: *"
The disallow for talk pages was voted in a large vote (see
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meinungsbilder/Unterschriftensammlung_für_Nichtindizierung_von_Diskussionsseiten_durch_Suchmaschinen )
and would help very much with ongoing highly problematic discussions about topics that are currently in
the media and in court. I don't know if the "talk"-equivalent is necessary. I added it as you can reach
inside every local wiki the namespaces via their english name and you can ignore it if it is not needed
in order to make the "noindex" perfect.

The format is wrong in the attachment, but that's a detail.

I'll set up the vfd bits in robots.txt, and see about the talk pages separately.

I have read the robots.txt page on meta so I guess the * are not necessary, right? Concerning the talk pages there was at first another
idea (also documented at the web link above) with adding <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow" /> in every weg page via a change in
the MediaWiki software as it is with the "nofollow" for weblinks.

But a solution with robots.txt would avoid that this page gets even loaded so it would reduce the requests by web spiders.

Resolved using meta tags.

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
