I'm looking for a clarification of the noindex, nofollow meta tag. I sometimes find it necessary to upload development files to our production server, since we do not have a development server and I wanted to know if setting  the <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="INDEX,NOFOLLOW">  tag on those pages is the optimal way of not having Google index them? Is there some other way of not making those pages available?

1) create sub domain
2) in iis block all traffic not coming from your IP

It's a little bit more than I bargained for, but it sounds like a good solution. Just so I understand,  I request a new subdomain from our hosting provider and then point it to a particular directory, then do number 2 and then upload all my development files to that directory?
