    this in my webmaster tools...

    so what i would like to know, is there a way i can tell google not to look after the file /video/blackjack.swf


    i would have already done in the robots.txt, but since google seems to find it in any and all directories... there must be a better way
    then me adding over 200 disalows in my robots.txt

    it even finds it in places that don't exist in the first place..

    Im sure google just takes any URL we do have and adds
    /wp-content/video/blackjack.swf

    how do i stop google doing that??

    Have you checked if those pages are included in your sitemap or anything that Google possible crawl in to? Or if those pages existed from the past and Google already cached them, they can't be erased unless you contacted Google for that.

    The actual problem is that your server returns 200 OK code for pages that don't exist. If you configure your server properly (respond 404 for pages that don't exist), problem should dissappear over time.

    If you want to speed things up a bit, you can always submit url's for deletion through Webmaster tools - but only after fixing the 404 problem.

    Hi SeoGuy,

    Gotta make this quick as I have a session to be in at A4U shortly but the answer is yes, very easily.

    Add a no index, no follow to your top-level page of the subdirectory, go to Webmaster Central Tools and submit a request to de-index the directory. This will include all pages beneath it.
