I don't see any reason why adding pages (or directories) to your
robots.txt file would affect orders - this is the preferred way of
limiting spider activity on your site.
Use something like:
As well as "ord" we also ban robots from our images directory (to stop
our graphics turning up in image searches), and "scan" to stop them
indexing "more" links.
