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.
If you do not want your page or site to be indexed by Google, you must submit that information to Google using a robots.txt file.
Since you cannot submit a robots.txt file from within your Leadpages account or using the Leadpages-hosted version of your page, you will need to publish your pages on your own server to prevent indexing by Google.
You can learn more about creating a robots.txt file here: http://www.robotstxt.org/
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 Lead 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
