Is this really true that Google crawlers will crawl iframe link? How to stop crawlers from crawling iframe links? Do I also need to add rel="nofollow" or there is an alternative way to do that? It's kind of important from the SEO point if view I want to keep crawlers on my site!!!!

Yes, it's a fact not many webmasters know about but all major search engines crawl iframe. The bad thing is that you can't use rel="nofollow" to preventing robots from crawling (indexing) that content, however it doesn't mean it can't be done!

The content of <iframe> tag will get crawled and indexed unless you block it with either robots.txt or a <meta> tag.

Victor robots.txt and <meta> tag will prevent crawlers from crawling and indexing the entire content of the web page which or site it's absolutely desastres for SEO (search engine optimization) just forget about it, it's not hurting your PageRank!!!!

You can prevent image Hotlinking with .htaccess just add this code to your .htaccess file:

Code:
01.RewriteEngine on  
02.RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$  
03.RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(www\.)?yourdomain.com [NC]  
04.RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(www\.)?yourdomain2.com [NC]  
05.RewriteRule \.(jpg|jpeg|png|gif)$ http://hpmouse.googlepages.com/hotlink.gif [NC,R,L]

Don't wary about iframe and images links because they are not affecting SEO at all as long as they are not clickable links only dofollow clickable links have affect on SEO!

Yes but if Google finds your URL it doesn't matter either iframe or img in some high PageRank web page it will count it as a vote which is very affective in SEO! You need to stop Google from using those links in their PageRank algorithm!

Robots cannot do SEO. It is only mind game.

You right SEO is a webmaster's responsibility and the webmaster has to know that any type of outgoing links is not good for SEO!
