How to disable page from showing up on search engines?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

When you visit my website, you'll see four of my portfolio links. I disabled clicking those using the advanced javascript editor. However, the pages still show up on search engines (i.e., Google) since they're technically still active. Those page names are:





Any way I can disable those pages from showing up on search engines? Thank you!

Hi @MTakai - you probably already did this, but just to be sure:

If you don't want pages on your Squarespace site to be indexed by Google or other search engines, you need to set the noindex tag on each page. Do this in the Page Settings > SEO tab (I think there's a toggle there that says "hide this page in search results" or something like that)

You can also help Google accurately index your site by setting up a property for your domain in Google Search Console (free tool) and submitting your Squarespace website sitemap. We have a detailed guide/video for this process here.

Even after you've completed these steps it might take a while for Google to reindex the site and remove those URLs if they were previously indexed. There's not much you can do to speed this process up.
