You can allow robots to index the sourceblock pages by setting

   $RobotActions['sourceblock'] = 1;

Or, it appears you can disable the GetCode link globally with

   $EnableSourceBlockGetCode = 0;

Because the sourceblock pages are returned as text/plain, I don't 
see an easy way to tell robots "don't index these pages" individually.
