    Hi there,

    I have recently started using Facebook Instant Articles. As my theme uses a lot a javascript that is not accepted by Facebook IAs and I only have a few articles that I want to be used by Instant Artciles, I have only allowed certain posts to be used. These are replicas of posts that are already published on the site with me striping the scripts that FIA won’t accept. To avoid duplication issues in my SEO I want to only allow the Facebook Meta Robot to follow and index these articles that are published soley for FIA. Is this possible to do via the Yoast SEO admin?

  • Probably easier to do something like use a custom field per post, then do an if/then in the header to insert the noindex tag for those specific posts; or, make a custom post type then add filter to disallow Yoast touching them. Couple of ideas there.

    Thanks neotrope, yeah I have thought of just adding a custom post type as that would probably be the easiest way.
