    Hello,

    We are a private, family-members-only site.

    We don't want Google to crawl our Contextly links whatsoever.

    How do we shut this feature off please?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Marc,

    Thanks for your concern.

    We make it easier for Googlebot to crawl those links on a publication's posts when Googlebot visits those pages. We don't send any info to Google whatsover.

    Since your pages are only visible to your family and members, Googlebot won't crawl your site and won't see our recommendations AT ALL.

    We don't share your private information. If you want a more detailed technical explanation I can do so, but I wanted you to know as soon as possible that your family's private information is still private.

    Best -

    So many sites want Google rankings and rightfully so.

    However, we are just the opposite. We don't want to be appear on Google or other search engines whatsoever.

    Thanks for letting me know your service can accommodate both scenarios.

    Cheers,

    Marc
