Prevent web crawlers from indexing your site

You can signal to ethical web crawlers that you prefer that they do not index your site by making the following ammendments to your template files:

Place the following meta tag into the <head> section of this page:
Configuration > Themes > Edit Default Theme > Template > Child templates, included by top level templates > header > header_common > header_htmlhead

<meta name="robots" content="noindex">

To prevent only Google web crawlers from indexing a page:

<meta name="googlebot" content="no index">

Please be aware that some search engine web crawlers might interpret the noindex directive differently. As a result, it is possible that your page might still appear in results from other search engines.
