remove Blog /tag URLs from Search Engine indexationSOLVE
Nov 22, 2019 4:27 PM
as the title says -a client wants to remove all /tag URLs from a specific blog from indexing. Is there a "simple" way to achieve this? I know that you can "globaly" add
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">
in Settings->Website->Blog->templates to the blog posting and blog listing templates but as he wants to remove only the /tag URLs neither of those two would work. Adding this to the "blog posting" header wouldn't help and adding the code to the listing view would also affect the default listing view - what's not the goal here.
I've told him about the solution with a custom robots.txt, but he's now happy about that. Excluding the /tag/* URLs in the Google Search Console is also not an option as it'll only affect the google results(who knows which other Search Engine the user uses).
Does anyone have a solution or idea how to achieve this?
Note: The client also told me that he want's a userfriendly and "easly scaleable" solution.
thanks in advance
