Hello luischortenrutas,

Unfortunately it is not possible to access the robots.txt file of your site to make changes to it. If you can tell me more about what you are trying to do possibly I can give you another suggestion.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hello,
What you can do is delete the pages from your Sitebuilder and re-publish your site. It will take some time for Google to re-spider your site and see that these pages have been removed from your site. When these changes are detected Google will remove the pages from their index. This can take some time, but will eventually happen and is out of our control.

What you can do is resubmit your sitemap to Google as this may get the spiders to your site sooner, but it is not a guarantee. Here is a link to our Google Webmaster Tutorial, step two has the instructions for submitting a sitemap: Google Webmaster Tutorial.

I hope this information is helpful!

My apologies for failing to understand each other completely. But how to delete my web pages? using site manager? As I can later retrieve the files? With the downloaded copy?

Thanks again

Hello,
If the pages were test pages and you don't need them any longer, you can just delete them from your site using these instructions:

1. Go to Site Manager.
2. Look for the name of the page you want to delete.
3. Click on the "Delete" link.
4. A dialog box will open, asking you to confirm that you want to delete the particular page.
5. Click on "OK".

Please remember deleting your page is not reversible; you cannot retrieve your information once your page has been deleted. So if you need the data from the pages, the best thing to do would be to put the data into a file on your computer if you want to access it at a later time.

I hope this information is helpful!

Kind Regards,
