Tell search engines not to index a view

Is there any way to dispense with the auto-generated metatag that tells search engines not to index a view?
Yes. The easiest way of doing it is to use a $$ViewTemplate with the form property "Content type" set to HTML. This is on Domino R6.

If you don't know about $$ViewTemplates, here is the short version. If you have a form called $$ViewTemplateDefault, and on this form you create a field called $$ViewBody, then all views in the database, when displayed in a browser, will be rendered in the place where the $$ViewBody field is, and all the fields, HTML and other code you have put on the $$ViewTemplate form will be displayed on the same page. This is a very powerful tool for customizing the view and what is displayed with the view.
