I host my website on Azure and I have recently activated a feature to make it possible for me to directly access each server instance in our web farm by a port number. For example
I'm a bit nervous of duplicated content in Google and I do not want Google to detect these URLs in some way and start to index them. I recently had this problem with Azure's default
cloudapp.net domains and I have now both added a 301 for this domain and also a robots.txt rewrite so I disallow bots for this domain.
I wanted to use a robots.txt rewrite rule for the different ports as well but it doesn't seems to work for some reason. I don't know if it has to do with Azure's handling, but for example the
SERVER_PORT variable is returning port
80 even if I go the to port
Anyhow, I was just trying to add my site with a port specification in Google Webmaster Tools, but that didn't work. So basically my question is if I have to worry about this at all, does Google even treat different ports as different sites?
