Hi everybody

Appart from robots.txt in the root directory, is there any other place in admincp that I can block spiders for crawling specific forums

My question is because I have a forum that dont appear on google searches, maybe the old administrator block this forum from crawling but the strange thing is that I dont have robots.txt in the root directory, thats mean google is 100% opened to crwal the site

Where in admincp can block spiders for crawling specific forums?

Thanks in advance

Check to see if you have this mod installed: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=268208

...or the site could have been blacklisted in the past for any number of reasons.

Go to Forum manager and click on a forum.

At Posting Options box

Index New Posts in Search Engine
(Setting this to 'No' will prevent anyone from being able to search in this forum)

This should be set for private forums.
