Ensuring a Page is NOT Indexed by Search Engines
I want to publish a private page on the web, that only I and a few other people will use. How can I ensure that this page is NOT picked up by search engines?
It will be a wiki style page, so there may be lots of content which could be indexed by the Search Engines. This is what I want to avoid.
Many thanks for your help,
There are a few ways to achieve this:
1) Use a Robots META tag in the page HTML and include "no index" in the tag.
2) Disallow the page in your robots.txt file.
3) Create the page in a sub-folder and password protect the folder so only persons with a login can view it. If your host uses CPanel, you can set this up yourself using WebProtect.
