I have a wordpress site and I want to make it so that google will not index my "pages" which will include products and lots of affiliate links in my niche category which I fear kill any chance I have at ranking with my keywords. These pages get displayed as tabs at the top (as you often see with wp sites).
Is this as easy as just adding it to my webmaster tools page in the disallow category?
Will anything negative come out of doing this?
