Hello Samlam

In order to stop the search engines from indexing your site, you would need to be able to edit your robots.txt file, which requires access to the root directory of your site. Unfortunately this is not possible with a Yola website. Currently the only way to stop your sites from being indexed on Yola is to:

1. Password protect your site, you can find the steps to password protecting your site on this link: Adding Password Protection. None of the content that is behind the password protection will be indexed. The name of your site might still appear in the search results, but there will be no description of the contents.
2. Unpublish your site so that the search engines don't index your published site. However, this would defeat the purpose of having a site, so we recommend the first option.

When Google detects this change, it will remove the pages from the index. This can take some time, but will eventually happen as Google wants to keep an accurate index. Unfortunately, this is out of our control.

Hello SamIam,

You can remove it off of Google by using meta tags. They work very good. Here, I put them on 'http://my.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc' and they will not show in Google at all. Try searching 'my.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc' and no urls with "my.nathansmusicstudio.cz.cc" will come up because I have those tags on there, and they work. The reason why I have them on that site is because it is a members area and shouldn't be in search results.

So here is the tags:

<!--

<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1">
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
<meta name="robots" content="noarchive">
<meta name="robots" content="noindex">

-->

Remember don't copy <!-- or --> just the code in between them.

Put these into an HTML widget from the "Basic" category on the side bar.

It may take a couple days for it to be removed by Google.

I hope this helps SamIam!

Where do you put the html widget with the code in it? Just anywhere on your site?

Hello Justin

Another way to keep your pages from Google is to add password protection.
