I'm designing an ASP.net site and notice when I google it all the pages of the site are found. How can I redirect the link to point to the default page no matter what link is clicked from a search engine?

Thank you

If you really want to hide the other pages from Google, you could set up a robots.txt file to hide everything but the index page.

Could be done by more ways, from my opinion the easiest is to use session. Generally, if the session starts, redirect visitor to the default page. If the session is already started, then leave him visiting the requested page.

Are there any good examples of using a robots.txt file with ASP?

[celazkon] has a good point.  If you're just interested in forcing everyone to see your home page first, you could do that in code.



Robots.txt will work just fine with ASP/ASP.Net.  Allow your home page.  Disallow everything else.

Actaully I kinda like both ideas. I just created the robots.txt file but I won't see the results of that until next time there is a crawl. If there is some example code to valaidate seesion state and redirect that would be great.

Sorry, I didn't see the follow-up post.  

You should be able to see if the Session persists or not using the sample from this page:
