Google Serches

I get a huge amount of google serches for some rather popular images that I have put up over the last year and a half. Is there any way to "block" the google search as they eat up a huge amount of my bandwidth....

any ideas besides quit blogging ;-)

I think if you go to google's main page, there might be a link on how to prevent the googlebots from archiving your pages and images.

You have to have this in robots.txt:

User-agent: Googlebot-Image
Disallow: /

I'm not a Munuvian, so I don't know if you can do this. It might be a central file for everyone, and I'm thinking most people wouldn't want to exclude it.

Details here:

Yep, you can update robots.txt (and .htaccess, if you need to). It's a separate file for each blog, so you can do anything you like.
