February 12th, 2006, 03:39 PM #1Trying to ban googles images
I have tried this below (in my .htaccess file) to ban google from using my images but I still kept getting lots of hits from their images section. I tried to add the http// like bottom and I kept getting an "Internal Server Errror" error message.
Can anybody please tell me the correct way to ban the various google images URL's?
<Limit GET PUT POST>
deny from images.google.com
<Limit GET PUT POST>
deny from http://images.google.com
</Limit>One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

I'm still wondering about this whole concept. Is a hit from images.google.com really someone using your bandwidth for their purposes, or is it the result of someone using a specific function of a search engine to locate sites with a particular .jpg or .gif?
I see a high percentage of this kind of hits on a collectibles site that is heavy in standard graphics*, and the hits come from four to six, sometimes more, country-centric googles.
The only thing that bothers me is that I don't think I see sales coming from this traffic.
*standard in this case in that they are provided probably by the manufacturer and could appear on many sites and be provided by many merchants.

My site(s) used to be found through keywords and now I see a lot of traffic comes from the Google images search -- I am not so happy about that because I don't think such searches are invitations to see more of my site that has been revealed -- it's more of a "hit and run" type of thing.
What would happen if it were banned? Could it be banned?
There would be less traffic to the site.

Would this work in a robots.txt file? But why ban them?
