You have to set the meta robots NOINDEX tag to your header. You have to use a module for this, because this is not a magento feature. I use this module.

  • Philippe, thanks. Could you please tell me where to start once I install this module from github on the server? May 9, 2022 at 3:32
  • After install the module by running this command in project root $ composer require "web200/magento-seo" You have to run the setup:upgrade command $ bin/magento setup:upgrade Then, you will find the module settings in the magento admin: Store > Configuration > General > Search Engine Optimization In production mode, you have to compile and deploy your content wit setup:di:compile and setup:static-content:deploy May 9, 2022 at 5:53
  • Thanks a lot, that is very helpful. Is there no way to manually add just a single line in the head for this like the last solution in the article below from Magento forum suggests? May 9, 2022 at 6:48
  • Philippe, here is the article I spoke about. community.magento.com/t5/Magento-2-x-PWA-Theming-Layout/… May 10, 2022 at 14:23

You can use the design configuration to update the rule, See here for command https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robots_exclusion_standard

  • I read the article partially, and find it difficult to achieve my aim. Could you please give me an example of how to noindex? May 9, 2022 at 3:19

You can install this free extension: https://github.com/TidycodeIT/magento2-meta-robots
