Hi all,
sorry for my bad english.
I need to avoid indexing some pages from robots of the search engines.
These page will be reachables by navigation, but will not appear as results of a search engine.
Is it possible?
I saw that exists a field "Robot", but doesn't look to answer to my need.

Thanks to all
Ciao
Mauro

Hey,
I am assuming you are still not waiting on a response for this.
This is more addressed to anyone who might land up on this page.

On the page settings, under robot, add

noindex,nofollow,noarchive,nosnippet


resulting in the following meta element on your page,

<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow,noarchive,nosnippet" lang="en-CA">




See here for an explanation of the tags - http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=79812

Note: This solves the problem if you intend to control this on the page by page level. However, it does not address how you would accomplish this on a site/portal level.

Cheers,
Sameer

why would you want less exposure on Google?

ok as per as my knowledge Google no longer recommends blocking crawler access to duplicate content on your website, whether with a robots.txt file or other methods.

There's a Robot setting in Control Panel -> Sites where robot.txt settings can be entered.
