    Google's image IP
    Does anybody Know the IP address for the google.com image search please? I want to put this in my database to ban them. I'm sick of getting more visitors from the image section of google than I get from the SE' section.

    What you do is not ban the IP but use it to your advantage. Let them come in. Just enable hotlinking and forward the boogers who search for an image to the front page of your site when they click to view the image from an outside source.

    Or you could put this in your robots.txt file..

    ___________________________

    User-agent: Googlebot
    Disallow: /*.jpg$
    User-agent: Googlebot
    Disallow: /*.jpeg$
    User-agent: Googlebot
    Disallow: /*.gif$

    _____________________________

    That may stop the googlebot from indexing your images..

    Okay Gordon,

    I've reread the question and I think I know what HWG is referring to now...

    On your Cpanel there should be a link to 'Hotlink protection'...and it should allow you to perform redirects there.

    Actually (for robots.txt), its:

    User-agent: Googlebot-Image
    Disallow: /

    For Yahoo:

    User-agent: Yahoo-MMCrawler
    Disallow: /

    If you have htaccess ability, you can add this in:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?yoursite.com/.*$ [NC]
    RewriteRule \.(gif|jpg)$ http://yoursite.com - [F]
    That just means basically that, if the referer doesn't (!) match your domain (with or with www), and it's a gif or jpg image, then redirect to your site.

    If you have cPanel, just use the "HotLink Protection" section. You can specify your extensions and redirects (if you want to redirect). By default cPanel attempts to add any urls it can find setup on your server.

    I have the correct info in my robots.txt file, but google imagebots are ignoring it.


    Here's a sample from my stats:

    http://images.google.co.in/imgres

    http://images.google.com.au/imgres

    http://images.google.com.co/imgres

    http://images.google.com.pe/imgres

    http://images.google.je/imgres

    http://images.google.no/imgres

    http://images.google.com.mx/imgres


    http://images.google.se/imgres

    http://images.google.ch/imgres

    http://images.google.be/imgres

    http://images.google.com.ph/imgres


    http://images.google.com.pr/imgres


    Also, does anyone know how to disallow:

    http://pictures.ask.com/

    http://search.msn.com/images/
