Summary: Redirect web crawlers to different pages
Prerequisites: Last tested on PmWiki version: 2.0beta-54
Could I show web crawlers like Googlebot, MSN Bot and others show different pages?
You want to protect several pages to crawl by web bots?
This script will detect the markup
(:blockcrawler:) and if a web crawler want to spider your website he will automaticly redirect to a special page in group BlockCrawler. In this way your content will be protected by indexing of (well-known) search engines.
- block_crawler.zip unpacks into cookbook/block_crawler.php, wikilib.d/BlockCrawler.HomePage and several special pages in wikilib.d/BlockCrawler.*
add the following line to config.php
- BlockCrawler/HomePage is the configuration file with following syntax:
- crawler name -> wiki page in group BlockCrawler to show -> optional comments
- There are three configuration variables
SDV($BlockCrawlerGroup, 'BlockCrawler'); - name of BlockCrawler group
SDV($BlockCrawlerConfigPage, 'HomePage'); - name of BlockCrawler config page
SDV($BlockCrawlerConfigItemize, true); - config page is bullet list or not
