    WordPress version: 3.42
    WordPress SEO version: 1.3.1.1

    I did this: noindex,follow specific posts

    I expected the plugin to do this: mass / bulk edit robots meta

    Instead it did this: post-by-post only

    Ultimate Noindex Nofollow Tool II http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ultimate-noindex-nofollow-tool-ii/ is an (outdated? - I cant get it to work on my 3.42-powered site altho the current maintainer claims it works on his (?) purpose of which is to allow noindex meta on selective mass scale(s); most attractive to me is the ability to set a list of posts via post id :) It would be great if some of the functionality of this plugin that is not already in WordPress SEO could be incorporated! Thx

    Even if robots meta could be set on a post-by post or bulk edit via posts panel in admin that would be a HUGE help.

    Does anybody know off the top of their head an sql query that could used to set various robots meta options in WordPress SEO via PHPMyAdmin?

    Thx

    I have found a workaround for this (worked for me anyway...):

    1. Install Yoast Robots-Meta Plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/robots-meta/. Review support threads, there are a couple of user-generated fixes I found and implemented - namely "3.3 bug" and "Tags bug", but it generally seems to work and plays nice w WordPress-SEO.

    2.Back up your database and run this query in PHPMyAdmin:

    UPDATE wp_posts SET robotsmeta = 'noindex,follow' WHERE ID IN (18455,18449,18443) where the numbers in parentheses are the post id's you want to mark. Kudo's to Troublefixers.com http://www.troublefixers.com/remove-multiple-wordpress-posts-from-google-search-engine-index/ (do NOT cut n paste the query off their page - it is published in some character set MySql doesnt like (wrong single quotes)

    3. You can then use the WordPress-SEO Import / Export Data tool to import the Robots-Meta data. After that you should be able to deactivate / delete Robots-Meta Plugin.

    If you want to noindex lots of pages and you have a list of page id's I might suggest Ultimate Noindex -NoFollow Tool II http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ultimate-noindex-nofollow-tool-ii/. You can noindex a list of page id's using this plugin. It hasnt been updated in a while but seems to work fine in 3.5
