Noindex


Noindex is a meta tag which instructs search engines not to include a specific page in their search results. The noindex tag can be placed in the <head> section of the page's HTML or in an HTML header returned by the web server. If a page was indexed by Google and then a noindex tag was added, the page will be dropped from Google's search results after Google recrawls the page. Example <meta name="robots" content="noindex">.
