I need to make individual pages within a public site non indexable and followable in search engines. Do I need to make a specific template for this? Can I use the html meta tag no index, no follow or do I need special aspx code?

Sharepoint will respect those meta tags.  Sharepoint will also respect the robots.txt file if you have one in the root of a site.

Ok, but I'm talking about individual pages within a subsite, not site-wide. I'm assuming since they are all template based that I need to create a custom master page with the meta tags and apply that template to the pages?

Well the robots.txt file at the root site can define sub-sites to ignore.  All search engines will respect it.

You can hide an entire site using the Site settings in the web UI for a site.

If you do not want to robots.txt then you have to customize the master page for specific pages.

PS: From your question it seemed like you were asking about a non-Sharepoint site.

Ok....can you point me to a robots.txt example that would hide a specific subsite within a collection?

I see I didn't mention SharePoint in the question itself, but I thought it was implicit in the thread title.

I thought you were using Sharepoint search on a non-Sharepoint site.  No worries.

On the link I gave you it had a link to information about the robots.txt file.

For information specific to Sharepoint 2003 & 2007 go to the bottom of this page.
