I have a site I'm redesigning that has a password protected page for members
only.  The only way to get to the page is by a tiny icon at the bottom of
the home page.  My question is: is there a way to keep the search engines
from indexing this members only page?  I don't want to do away with the link
but I don't want that page to come up in a seach engine result.  Hope
there's a command or something.

Thanks in advance,
Carolyn Balkum
