Support » Plugin: Email Address Encoder » protect custom fields against search engines

    Hi Till

    I’d like to encode the some fields on my pages for search engines. As you can see here:
    https://korbball.tgtv.ch/team/eggethof-h1/, I have some fields with names and I dont want that you can google one of my team members.

    Will [encode][custom_field_with_names][/encode] protect the field with the free version?

    Best regards
    Stefan

    Mmmhh, that’s tricky. This plugin isn’t designed to hide things from search engines, but I could easily add that.

    The issue is that some search engines like Google use real browsers to crawl sites, so even JavaScript hidden content will render and get indexed.

    oh I see, it’s a bit tricky because I want that SE find the team pages but they shall not find the names and probably team pictures.

    It seems like the only somewhat reliable way is detecting if the current user agent is a search engine crawler and removing the content (email addresses) entirely from the output.

    Is that good enough?

    Hi Till

    Thats an interessting Idea but I dont know how to implememt it.

    I’m used a shortcode [CONTENT] plugin to display the AFC fields.

    Oh sorry, that was just a note for me.

    I’ll add this to the paid version in the near future for testing and when it works well push support into the free version.
