I am using a script that uses jump.php to redirect visitors to specific pages rather than linking directly. This shows up as crawl errors for Google (Check out Google sitemaps). How would I exclude every jump.php link using the robots.txt? There are many dynamically generated url's that I want to exclude. Example would be: /jump.php?id=61905

Hmmm...
Disallow: /jump.php

Think it will tell spiders not do not all jump.php
Could be wrong though

I have many links to jump.php with query strings at the end. For example:

/jump.php?id=224582
/jump.php?id=224616
/jump.php?id=225353
/jump.php?id=225700
/jump.php?id=225710
/jump.php?id=225757

Would blocking /jump.php be enough or is there some variable like * that should follow it?

I think it would.
Been seeing that for my site, I disallow rss.php and it looks like it is working. All rss.php?xxxxx has very few hits now.

But I hope someone can confirm.
