Hide a page from being indexed by Google

Is there a stack or a line of code I can add to a page that will stop Google etc from finding it?

There are no guaranteed means other than putting a password on the page. You can uncheck the index and follow boxes on the page inspector. That generates the meta tag that requests search engines not to index the page and not to follow links on the page.

There’s also a robots.txt file that you have set up manually to request the same thing.

Google, Bing, and the other search engines warn you that these are just requests the try to honor them but sometimes these pages still get indexed.


Thanks so much for this info
