How can I stop any spiders from visiting my site while I am in the process of building it (Zen Cart)? I am building a site similar to my existing site and dont want it to be considered duplicate content~ I will be taking the other site down once this one is ready.

Or..

Is this not even an issue??

Any advice appreciated!

2 things maybe


1: 'body script'
<!-- spider trap -->
<a href="/robots/bad-robot.html" onclick="return false;" onmouseover="window.status='Do not follow this link, or your host will be blocked from this site. This is a spider trap.'; return true;"><img height="1" width="1" align="right" border="0" src="/images/pixel.gif?bad-robot" alt="Do not follow this link, or your host will be blocked from this site. This is a spider trap."></a>
<!-- end spider trap -->

2: Dont enter anything into the meta tag field until complete......

Some one eles might have a clue?

Actually, I don't think it's an issue - and the sooner they are spidering you - the sooner they'll send you traffic when you are ready.
