Testing Robots and META Robots NoIndex Tag


If you can read this, you're too close.

In fact, if you see this in an index created by a robot spider (also known as a crawler), that spider is ignoring the META ROBOTS NOINDEX tag and breaking the rules. For other tests, see the Robot Test List page.

The meta robots tag for this page is: <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX,FOLLOW">, meaning that robots should not index text on this page, but can follow links to other pages.

Search Test Keyword: RTest, RTest102, RTestProblem, RTestProblem102
