How to prevent website from being indexed? How to remove website from SERP?

Thursday, March 28, 2013


There are questions like:

HOW TO DE-INDEX WEBPAGES?
HOW TO REMOVE SITE FROM SEARCH ENGINE RESULTS?
HOW TO PREVENT SITE FROM BEING INDEXED BY SEARCH ENGINES?
HOW TO REMOVE WEBSITE FROM SERP?


In-order to avoid site from indexing or showing up in search results you can do following:

-----------------


MODIFY ROBOTS.TXT FILE

We have to modify the robots.txt file to add the instruction for search engine bot not to crawl the website

instruction is like this
User-agent: *
Disallow: /


-----------------

ADD ROBOTS META TAG

you can add meta tags

<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow" />
The issue with this is is that you have to add it to each and every page.

-----------------

HTACCESS CHANGES

Another option is to add following instruction in .htaccess page

Header set X-Robots-Tag "noindex, nofollow"

And it’d have the effect that that entire site can be indexed, but will never be shown in the search results.

-----------------

**SERP - stands for Search Engine Result Pages
