How to hide website/pages from search engine results

In search engine optimization, some of the common words are nofollow, noindex, follow and doindex which all are the HTML attributes.

“Nofollow” provides a way for webmasters to tell search engines “Don’t follow links on this page/website” or “Don’t follow this specific link”. This means that Google does not transfer PageRank or link-juice across these links. Only Humans will be able to follow the links. Pixpa allows you to add nofollow link for both your website and any specific link in blog/ pages.

How to add nofollow for all pages of the website

The nofollow attribute will be added in the page-level meta tag and instructed search engines not to follow (i.e. crawl by bots/crawlers/spiders) any outgoing links on the website.

Go to the Marketing (1) section in the studio. In the SEO menu, you would see the option to Allow or Disallow  (3) the indexing of the website from the search engine and click on the Save (4) button.

Disallow it to add nofollow tag for your website.

As you disabled the toggle, refresh your website and go to source code page.

You would see the nofollow tag as shown below.

By default, all hyperlinks or anchor tags are dofollow only. So, you don’t need to add anything to make a link do-follow as such. But to make a nofollow link, you need to add rel attribute to instruct robots not to crawl this specific link. For example:

An Nofollow Link: <a href=”” rel=”nofollow”>ABC</a>

and Dofollow Link: <a href=””>ABC</a>

In Pixpa, You can easily edit your anchor/link in page and blog post. You need to add the link first then go to HTML editor and add rel attribute (rel=”nofollow”). That’s it.
