  • Hide a page from search engines

    Hide this page from search engines? - (An inline metadata field) If a page is excluded from navigation menus, choose whether the page should also be excluded from search engine results. If the URL of the page is known, the unlisted page can still be accessed, but a search query in a search engine will not list the page.
