Hey Tim,

There are several options:

  1. Install a module like Protected Mode or Maintenance Mode. This way bots won't crawl into your website since you have to be logged in.
  2. Use a robots.txt or the meta tags as you describe.

I prefer option 1 since it's a matter of keeping everyone out except clients with an username and password. The disadvantage of option 2 is that you will have to remember to remove both when deploying to live.
