ok I installed site map generator and it works great. I have an adult site where I am very proactive in making sure proper notices are presented to users.. as in 'must be 18 years of age to enter' or if not -exit.
Vbulletin has been integrated into an existing site.
I have noticed though that if a subpage gets index with a search engine clicking on that listing will give user direct access to the adult content without going through my age verification page. which I cannot let happen.
So I thought to set permission in vbulletin admin so that visitors cannot read posts. (I already have pics block) until they signup for an account.
However if I do this I am also thinking that SE spiders will also be block from indexing my page/page content that are generated from my sitemap?
So my question is this, "Will editing 'Unregistered / Not Logged In' permissions to NOT be able to view forum posts also stop Search engine spiders from viewing and indexing posts??
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
