How to use NoIndex, NoFollow and robots.txt with SE’s

Today, The GWI will award Google, Inc. the Gigawidget award. While I’ve been following Google’s development of search engine techniques over the yearI’ve been reading about how to use various meta and robots.txt files in correctly. What I’ve learned is that today, due to abuse and the desire for advanced “results”, these “commands” don’t mean what they used to. I guess that’s a good thing, as surfers demands aren’t what they used to be either.

Update, I had written this post and figured on adding to it, but due to the wealth of info on the net covering this topic, by comments would simply be repetitious.  I will abstain.

    I think the no follow meta has use other than described here. Can you post an example using this code?
