I am trying to hide our website's admin directory from public view as best as possible and have read the Securing Craft article. I am pleased at how easy it is to make a directory that isn't easy to guess using the cpTrigger setting in the config file.
My next thought was to disallow the directory on the robot.txt file, keeping crawlers from indexing the login page. The obvious issue with that is that now the "hidden" admin directory is in public view from our robot.txt file, not exactly what I want to do.
Is there something in the metatags or HTML of the Craft admin pages that blocks crawlers from indexing the admin pages? I was hoping to see the following on the admin pages: But they are not present. Is there a reason we would not want these by default on the Craft admin pages?
Please advise on the best practice here, perhaps I am overthinking things, or there is another way altogether to accomplish this.
