Noindex, Doindex, Nofollow, Dofollow- all other common SEO terms that every blogger should know while optimizing his posts and pages for search engines. Earlier I wrote a detailed guide on what are dofollow and nofollow links. Below is a quick guide on how to noindex specific posts and pages in WordPress.
How to Noindex Posts and Pages
Noindex using Robots Meta plugin
You can noindex specific posts and pages in WordPress using a simple plugin named “Robots Meta“.
Download and install the plugin from WordPress repository. Once activated, it will automatically show Noindex, Doindex, Nofollow, DOfollow options with every post editor mode.
Though Robots Meta plugin hasn’t updated for long, still it should work fine with latest WordPress version. However there is another latest plugin named “WordPress Meta Robots” which should also work fine.
Noindex using Premium Themes’ Built-in option
Premium themes like Thesis, Genesis have built-in option today to control noindex and nofollow from the post editor mode. If you have such premium themes then you can easily control noindex more effectively.
