Can't get noindex code to work.

Can anybody see a problem with the code below? I'm getting an error message that says I need to include the noindex code in the head section of the document, which it is... Any help is appreciated!

<html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Star Wars Merchandise</title> <meta name="description" content="Shirts and hats for fans of Star Wars"> <link rel="canonical" href="http://mystuff.com/starwars"> <meta name="robot" content="noindex"> </head> <body> <h1>Star Wars Merchandise</h1> <p>Shirts and hats for fans of Star Wars</p> <h2>Boba Fett Shirts</h2> <p>Available in white; sizes S-M-L-XL</p> <p>Darth Maul Hat</p> <p>Available in black or white at <a href="http://hats.com">Hats.com</a></p> </body> </html>

I'm not seeing your code but the proper syntax is below. It goes in the head section. If that's what you have you might have to refresh the page.

<meta name="robots" content="noindex">
