Search engine indexes CQ4 Media Library pages

Issue

Google or another search engine indexes the media library pages on the publish instance.

Solution

Modify the medialib.esp file to return a 403 on response to the media library when the user "nobody" makes the request. The user "nobody" is the default anonymous user that the publish instance uses internally.

Patch /libs/CFC/templates/medialib/medialib.esp in your publish instance as follows:
Wrap the contents of medialib.esp with the following code.

<%

if( actuser.handle == "/access/users/superuser/system/nobody" ) { response.status = 403;

} else {

%> [contents of medialib.esp]

<%

}

%>
