I've added this to the Custom Meta Tags under Metadata on the "Home page" of the site
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow" />
<meta name="revisit-after" content="31 Days" />

And changes this in the head section of
<title>$Title &raquo; Maritime Museum of San Diego</title> - original


I see the other way to help search is with a robots.txt file -

Except I have no idea which folders are the ones that should be under "Allow: or Disallow:"

My main goal is to help the SEO of this site, which has been horrible to this point. Will the custom meta tags I added help, or is there a robots.txt for silverstripe that I should use instead?

Thank you,

Well you could disable things like


You could also put your /assets/ folder if you didn't want that to be indexed. I don't think you will need to list every module as the only urls generated from the modules which are allowed would be images, javascript or css files.
