How do I stage a NEW blog listing page?

Hello, we are changing the look of our blog listing page and I cannot find any guidance as to how to stage this so my client can preview before it goes live.  I saw something about creating a test blog in my endless searches for guidance on this, but the test posts could get picked up by search engines.  What is the best practice for this?

 

Also, I created a new template for the listing page and I am able to preview the listing portion of the blog there, which is at least somewhat helpful. However, it is picking up the wrong blog (we have two) and I'd like to see the other blog in the preview.  Seems like this should be an easy thing to figure out and yet I cannot. Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi @KLSutton 

Yes, you are right here By Creating Test Blog.
And Please add ' Noindex query' on blog "Blog listing pages header HTML" from blog settings 

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

 Check more options https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2007/03/using-robots-meta-tag.html

Hope this will work.

Thanks! Kind of a clunky solution but I guess it's something, appreciate the quick response.  I also realized after thinking about and researching this far too long... I can also click "Preview with Display Options" from my new template and there is a way to toggle between list and blog views (Change View, upper right corner) and select the Blog I want to view without actually making the template live in Blog settings.  Because my client knows his way around the back of Hubspot, I can walk him through viewing this way before we go live.   This might work for others in my predicament (you can also screenshot this I suppose) and is a bit quicker than setting up a test blog.

Hubspot, maybe a staging option for the blog that is a bit simpler sometime?  Thanks again psdtohubspot!

You are welcome @KLSutton 

But unfortunately blog content staging not possible in hubspot can see this thread.
