Can anyone tell me the best way to stop google and bing etc from indexing my development store file.

I am doing some upgrades and installing a new theme, but want to work on a development store before going live, but I do not want this folder to be indexed.

What is the best way to achieve this.

 

Thank you all in advance

 

Juanita

Hi eComLabs, just by closing the store you are stopping search engines ?

 

Kind Regards

yes, but they may crawl when you have it open, but use the special url to access yourself to avoid this

Sure, they will see only service messages
