Robots meta tag and robots.txt
According to https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6062596?hl=en&ref_topic=6061961
robots.txt must be at the root of the website host. We do not have privileges for that directory, so we should use meta tags on school computer systems to avoid search engines.
I think one puts the following in index.html in the "head" section to ask robots not to search the directory in which index.html resides. So do not put it in your primary web directory (PUBLIC_HTML usually).
<meta name="robots" content="noindex" />

My Erdös number is 3, e.g. through the path AVG - Jeff Ullman - Ron Graham - PE. Also, my Erdös number of the second kind (where only two-authored papers count) is (at most) 7, through the path AVG - Jeff Ullman - John Hopcroft - Robert Tarjan - Andrew Yao - Nick Pippenger - Joel Spencer - PE. Thanks to Jan Johannsen for publicizing how to figure this out. Don't miss other interesting stuff on his home page, such as the Proof Complexity Theme Song.
