There is a whole range of reasons & situations in which you’d want to keep posts & pages out of search results. Let’s take a look at how to do this…
Rank Math allows you to set a post/page/product/CPT to
NoIndex in a simple way. For the sake of simplicity, we are going to show you how to set a post to
NoIndex but the principle applies to your pages, products, custom post types, or taxonomies as well.
First, you need to select the Advanced Mode in Rank Math:
You need to use Advanced Mode to see the Advanced option in the single post editor in case you want to change it for a particular post. The advanced tab in Rank Math caters to the indexing options.
Noindex Posts & Pages In The Classic Editor
You need to edit your post and then below your post in Rank Math, click on the Advanced tab.
In the Robots Meta section, you will find the No Index check-box. No Index will prevent the post from being indexed and displayed in search engine result pages.
By default, Rank Math allows you to Index your posts. If you don’t want to index your post then you simply need to click on the No Index check-box as shown below.
