How do I stop my journal from appearing on search engines?
There is no 100% bulletproof way to ensure that your journal and/or content will not show up on a search engine. However, most of the time you'll have success by blocking spiders and robots. To do this, go to Edit > Personal Info & Settings. When logged on, find it here:
Scroll toward the bottom of the page until you see:
Block Robots/Spiders from indexing your journal
If you check this option, robots will be told to go away. Not all robots respect the rules.
This is also a good time to check and see if your email address is "mangled", which will keep robots from pulling it from your page to use for spam.
