What’s New Getting Started Building Integrating Publishing

Restrict pages or sites from public search

Last Updated

There are some pages and/or sites that you might not want listed in Google (or any search engine) search results.

While Leadpages does not submit to Google or other search engines, pages and sites created in your Leadpages account become accessible to Google because modern browsers automatically submit viewed pages and sites to Google.

Prevent search engine indexing

You can prevent your page or site from being indexed, here's how:

For Drag & Drop pages and sites, navigate to the Tracking tab then SEO within the builder, and select the “I don't want to search engines to index this page” option, as seen below:

For Standard pages, you can include a “meta tag” in your landing page. To do so, click on Lead Page Options in the Page Editor, and then Tracking Codes. In the Head-Tag section, paste in:

<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW">

As shown here:



PLEASE NOTE: 
This code may prevent your page from being indexed, but Leadpages cannot guarantee that no engines will index your page. Some internet programs may ignore this tag. For more information, please see: http://www.robotstxt.org/meta.html

Looking for a robots.txt file?

Since you cannot submit a robots.txt file from within your Leadpages account or by using the Leadpages-hosted version of your page, you will need to publish your pages on your own server in order to do so.

You can learn more about creating a robots.txt file here: http://www.robotstxt.org/
