Are there any risk using this code?  What is the cgi-bin/  folder for mine is empty.

No, there isn't any risk.  You have full control over your domain with the robots.txt file...

The cgi-bin can contain cgi script.  Some hosts provide a lot of extra functionality that you can install.  That is often stored in the cgi-bin...

NR I found this code, how is this one different from the one you gave?  Which one is better?

<meta name="robots" content="index,follow" />

I can't really tell you for sure.  I think it doesn't hurt to have both.  You can control access to your entire site with the robots.txt file and control the access to your board with the meta tag...

I made a few robots.txt files - put one in my forum root - saw that in one of your post.   I also have other subdomain sites so I put one in each sub domain htdocs folder.  I also put the file in my main ftp area, the one that has the cigbin folder in it.

I have the image tags done as well.   The keywords I use, if I enter one of the keywords into the google search will that bring up my site?

So far my site does not show up at all Sad

Thanks

Search engines take a little time to index your site.

I'll have to do this with my site soon. My site shows up second if you search for "The Aussie Aviator" on Google world wide but if I search Australia it doesn't. I think this is to do with not having a .au domain.

I think the only robots.txt file that matters is the one in your domain root.  I really don't know for sure though.  This is a gray area for me...

Your guess is as good as mine.  I think to find your site, Jaddon would be what you would enter.  If you included a lot of keywords in your Meta tags, then you might be able to find your board by typing any of the keywords in the search...

The more keywords you have, the easier people can find you. Don't just have single words like Jaddon. Use a short sentence with a few words.

I used lots of single words, did not think of putting them in a sentence.  Thanks for the help.

So far even when I enter Jaddon into a google search my site still does not come up Sad

Guess I will have to give it some time.

Well-behaved robots obey the instructions in robots.txt, badly-behaved ones don't. From what I've read, you'd have to restrict robots in your .htaccess file,  to prevent certain robots from seeing your site at all. I don't remember if you can restrict them to certain folders in .htaccess.

Many search engines send their 'bots from link to link, so a good way to get listed higher is to have other sites link to yours. Some search engines now ignore the META tags due to abuse by some sites. Instead, they look at the actual text on the page, so it's a good idea to have text rather than just images on your home page, for indexing. Or so I've read.

It does come up on page 11 of google search. Hopefully it will move up a bit for you!!  wave
