Update your robots-meta plugin!

You can now use the robots meta plugin to verify with Google Webmaster Tools and Yahoo! SiteExplorer as well, a great suggestion by Roy, I fixed some bugs next to that, so I’d advise you to upgrade!

Note: make sure to deactivate and then activate the plugin. There’s a function that’s triggered on activation that needs to run for the plugin to work correctly.

    Hi Joost,

    First of all, I love your work, I think it’s amazing and a must have for all WP users!!

    I only have one question (maybe a stupid question, I don’t know;)).

    I just upgraded to v2.1 with the new Google and Yahoo options. But how do I use these??

    Regards

    Hi Vincent, it should give you two input fields on the robots meta page, in which you can add the content=” value of the verification tags both Google Webmaster Tools and Yahoo! Site Explorer give you. I’ll create a full tutorial on how to do that in the coming days.

    Hi Joost,

    I was about to ask if you thought adding an option to “follow, noindex” any “/page/2/” etc. would be beneficial when I noticed that there was an option saying “Subpages of the homepage”

    What IS that option for?

    And I have it enabled, but I don’t have the robots tag at the top…

    Any thoughts?

    Hi James,

    Hey Joost,

    Firstly, thanks for all the wonderful wordpress plugins! I truly enjoy them.

    Robots Meta is my latest install and I was wondering if I should use both a robots.txt file as well as the robots meta tags? Or just one?

    Appreciate your input!

    Happy Holidays!
    Lucas

    @Lucas: You can use both together just fine :)
