How to Not Index a Blog Page (Remove from Sitemap?)

Recommended Posts


but if the page is getting traffic from Pinterest or social, I want to keep it around.  Are there any other options?  Code injection perhaps?

Code injection would be the only option. It would require JavaScript and the business plan or above.

A possible solution ignoring Squarespace for a moment, is to put a noindex instruction ( <meta name="robots" content="noindex"> ) in the head element of the page. Squarespace allows code to be added to the head element at the Blog page level but not in specific blog posts. If you put the meta tag in code injection for the Blog page, all pages of the blog would pick that tag up and no pages of your blog would be indexed. So we are left with JavaScript to decide when to insert the meta tag. Also there is the caveat. By using JavaScript the search engine crawlers may or may not pick up the tag inserted by JavaScript. We have no control over what the search engines do.

I'm am unaware of any code that does the above.
