First, create an "example.com/robots.txt" file in that location. Second, write these directives in your "robots.txt" file: User-agent: * Disallow: /the-page/that-you-want-to-disallow.html Third, that's it! "/the-page/that-you-want-to-disallow.html" is now inaccessible to search engine spiders, except malware robots. For more info, visit The Web Robots ...

A lot of time since this quesiton and answer were posted. Since then things has changed a lot. The typical recommendation about disallow crawlers to access wp-content/themes, wp-content/plugins, wp-content/cache, wp-includes, and any other directory that contains CSS or js files needed in the site, are no longer valid. For example, lets talk about Google. ...

The setting is stored in the options table under the key blog_public, the value is either 0 or 1. You can see the value of all options by manually visiting the page /wp-admin/options.php. A quick way to get rid of it would be to remove the noindex action hooked to wp_head, which is what outputs that tag if blog_public is 0: remove_action( 'wp_head', '...

You need to place the following code in your theme's search.php file. <?php $search_query = get_search_query(); if ( $search_query == 'gold' ) { echo 'my gold ad'; } else if ( $search_query == 'oil' ) { echo 'my oil ad'; }

If you wrap some content in a is_user_logged_in() condition, all that content will only be rendered to users who have an account on your website and are logged into that account. Now, do Google bots have an account on your website? Hell no. So no, that content will never be indexed by Google in your website. Also, it will never be visible to any of your not ...

Yoast SEO is set up to do this for you on a per-page basis. If you aren't using Yoast already, I'd strongly recommend it - there are advanced controls for SEO, indexing, redirecting, etc.

The setting is stored in the option blog_public. if( 0 == get_option( 'blog_public' ) ){ echo 'search engines discouraged'; }

If you are using an SEO plugin such as Yoast, it automatically adds all Custom Post Types (and Taxonomies) to the sitemap that is used by Google & other search engines. You will need to explicitly exclude them from the sitemap e.g in Yoast, this is under the "Post Types"/"Taxomonies" tab in the "XML Sitemaps" settings page. Also don't forget to remove ...

There is a way to hide a post type by default from Yoast. However your milage may vary depending on what you are doing with your post type. If you are using it on the front end directly then this won't work for you. In my case I was pulling the content via shortcodes. So the 'public' argument when registering your post type enables/disables a few arguments ...

A simple solution would be to add a tag or category, and name it 'nofollow'. You could then use a conditional tag in your theme's function.php and add <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW"> to the outputs of the wp_head action. For example: if(is_tag('nofollow')){ add_action('wp_head', 'wp_head_nofollow'); } function ...

Please go to Settings > Reading or wp-admin/options-reading.php If it's not unchecked it will not allow search engines to reach.

If it is because of SEO and the warnings in the Google Search console, these can be ignored. wp / Page2 and so on should still be indexed. The this answer and the article with the answer from google: For a while, SEOs thought it might be a good idea to add a noindex robots meta tag to page 2 and further of a paginated archive. This would prevent people from ...

Add in the search parameter to your query: $search_filters = array( 'post_type' => 'page', // Doorzoekt alle post types 's' => $keyword // show only posts that meet the current search query ); And above that you should just be able to grab the keyword right from your querystring like so: $keyword = $_GET['s']; There's also a WordPress native ...

Which filter do you need? With Envato you can filter for keywords, software version, categories, etc. Maybe try here on Template Monster.

Pretty sure I stole borrowed the following piece of code from the very handy and useful Yoast Plugin: /** * Check if Website is visible to Search Engines */ function wpse_check_visibility() { if ( ! class_exists( 'WPSEO_Admin' ) ) { if ( '0' == get_option( 'blog_public' ) ) { add_action( 'admin_footer', 'wpse_private_wp_warning' ); ...

The WP in their URLs is not related to WordPress, it’s just a shorthand for WebPage. These types all have the type WebPageElement as parent. In my opinion, using WebPageElement or one of its sub-types (like WPHeader etc.) is pointless for general web pages (there are some special cases and non-HTML contexts where it might make sense to use these types). It ...

This is not something that WordPress core adds, it is something that themes add, and to know why, you will have to ask the authors.

You should follow Joost de Valk's current approach where very little is blocked in robots.txt, but also understand that each site will have a uniquely appropriate policy that will need to be reviewed and changed over time. Many of the answers given here previously are dated and will result in SEO self-sabotage since Google checks for "mobile friendliness" ...
