Preventing Tags From Being Indexed (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I have set tags not to be indexed, however, they still get indexed. I've checked the Tag archives check box on the indexation settings page, is there anything else I need to do?

    Thanks!

    Hi. You may want to add this to your robots.txt:

    Disallow: /tag

    From what I understand that's not the best way to prevent it from getting indexed. How does the plugin prevent tags/categories from getting indexed? Does it edit the .htaccess file or how does it work?

    Thanks!

    Ok so it works if I edit each tag manually and set it to noindex, however, this would take forever if I did it for all :(

    Same here, the plugin does not work to noindex all tag pages or category pages. The only way it to do it manually for each page. Needs to be fixed.
