I am creating a test domain on my site, but would like to make sure (for SEO purposes really) that my test site is not picked up by the search engines.
I have put the "nofollow, noindex" meta tags in the master page, but don't know enough about the ping services etc...
Do I need to disable these ping services in my test environment? (This would be awkward as it is using the same database at present... I guess this is where each ping service status is recorded... but would disable if required).
Also is there anything else I've missed which should be concidered in a test site?
