i need to block my website, from all search engines, so i uploaded a robot.txt file into my root directory, but it does show up as mysite.com/robot.txt, i also tried to upload new sitemap.xml file, but it still remains as the old sitemap when i come go to mywebsite.com/sitemap.xml, how do i do resolve this problem

my website is:
hebronpc.yolasite.com
hebronpc.yolasite.com/resources/robots.txt (the new file to block Search Engine)
hebronpc.yolasite.com/robots.txt (the old one to be replaced with the new one)

It is not possible to upload to the root directory with Yola. Password protecting your site should block it from search engines. As far as the xml, I believe that is generated automatically so it will not change. You could direct a search engine to your new one but be sure to add the word resources to the url as this is the name for the file manager where your file is uploaded to. Please ask if you have further questions.

thanks diane, just one more question, do u know how to 301 redirect my old domain to a new one, for example, when someone clicks on hebronpc.yolasite.com, it should redirect the viewer to my new domain, any ideas, cause i submitted my old url to different directories, so when they click my old site, it should redirect to my new one that i am going to buy.

Hi,
I guess that you failed to add your own sitemap.xml to Google!

Go to http://hebronpc.yolasite.com/robots.txt and read it.
Yola has restricted access to your /resources folder.

If you need to prevent search engines from being displaying your site is (in Yola) adding
- no follow
- no index
- no archive

meta tags for * search engine.

You need to put the metatag on very top of your EACH PAGE.
