Here’s how to stop Google from using your web content for generative AI

Google introduced Google-Extended, a new control that allows web publishers to manage how their content is used for generative AI use cases such as Bard and Vertex AI, as well as “future generations of models.” The feature provides more choice and control over website content, Google said. “A website administrator can choose whether to help these AI models become more accurate and capable over time.” Similar to OpenAI’s GPTBot, you can use robots.txt to block Google-Extended.

User-agent: Google-Extended
Disallow: /

It’s not clear from the announcement if blocking Google-Extended will cause Bard and SGE to stop using your content in chat, or if it’s just about training data.
