- [Engineering] What robots.txt tells you about corporate culture - the case study of Nike and Adidas
The file contains instructions for search engines on what they can and cannot index and make searchable. Note that in the examples below # indicates a comment line that is not read by the computer; the other lines provide specific instructions to allow or disallow access to search engines.

On my way to the D conference today, one of the main events is alleged to be the launch of "Bing," Microsoft's new search engine. Instead, they'll focus on planting the idea that today's search engines don't work as well as consumers previously thought by asking them whether search (aka Google) really solves their problems. That, Microsoft is hoping, will give consumers a reason to consider switching search engines, which, of course, is one of Bing's biggest challenges
