So I was reading this old thread about global categories, namely how to make them local to my own blog. Once I changed the Privacy Settings to "I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors" that happened, which is great, but the thing is--I don't want to block search engines like google or whatever from finding, archiving, or indexing my wpcom blog. I just don't want the categories I've placed the posts in to link outside of the blog itself. Why are these two functions linked? Is there a way I can avoid the implementation of a robots.txt or something similar without linking my categories back to all of wpcom?
The blog I need help with is templemarker.wordpress.com.
