Does Google Webmaster Code have to Apply to Every Page?

Why does the Properties tab for Google Webmaster Code apply to all pages when the other tabs are page specific? I want one of my pages not indexed by Google this way and would like to know if that's possible, although I did submit a sitemap which probably messed that up, whoops. Thanks.

You can try the Google meta code on your page at the top to stop indexing of that page. Have a look at Webmasters Central and locate the relatively recent write up on stopping the Google bot from looking at a page.
This may not prevent other spiders from looking through your page.
I would also re-submit the site-map without that specific page included. easily done with Notepad.
Unfortunately other than blocking your page with a password, there's no guaranteed prevention of spiders looking at your page and that then being indexed.

Hello Jason,

Thank you for your message. The Google Webmaster Code only needs to be applied to your index page. While in your sitebuilder on your index page, please see the right hand of your screen. Under the 'properties' tab, there will be a specific field for entering the Google Webmaster Code:

If you have successfully entered the code, you will see a verification in your Google Account. Password protection of certain pages can assist keeping entrances of certain pages private.

Please view this helpful tutorial that explains the entire process of adding this code: Google Webmaster Code.
