Usage[change | change source]

This template adds __NOINDEX__, which may remove the page from some search engines and automatically categorizes pages in Category:Noindexed pages. By default, it displays no content.


|visible = yes – makes the template display a line of plain text to inform editors that the page is excluded from search engine indexing:

This page has been removed from search engines' indexes.

Warnings[change | change source]

Note: to avoid unexpected results or unnecessary duplication, read Wikipedia:Controlling search engine indexing to make sure you are familiar with the different ways noindexing is done.

__NOINDEX__ is disabled in article space and this template consequently has no effect there.

Note: major search engines should respect the NOINDEX tag, but it may take days or even weeks for content already indexed to be removed from them.
