What is a Noindex Tag?

A noindex tag is a meta tag that tells search engine crawlers to disregard a web page from its indexing process. This attribute means the page will not appear in the search results.

More About Noindex Tags

You can add the noindex meta tag to thesection of a page or its HTPP response header. However, a page needs to be accessible to crawlers to take note of this tag. Therefore, if you want to utilize the noindex tag, you’ll need to ensure that a robots.txt file isn’t blocking the page.

You may want to use noindex tags for essential web pages that have no reason to appear in the search results.

For instance, thank you pages, admin login pages, and author archives may be necessary for your site. Still, no one will need to search for them on Google.
