How do I hide my BuddyPress content from Google?

  • joeyzornes


    Version of WordPress: 3.3.2
    Version of BuddyPress: 1.5.6
    Hosted on a regular Apache server. No bells/whistles. Runs fast.

    We created a password-protected buddyPress experience for a client. His staff is able to connect, and leverage all of the BuddyPress features. They also use it as a corporate communication platform.

    My problem is that all of the words, content, people contained in the articles/blog posts are popping up in Google search results and are at least in part, readable. Of course the link leads to the password page.

    This content is pretty confidential at times, and we do not want it viewable at all.

    Does anyone know how to lock this down from Google?

  • You did of course add a robots.txt text file? Use webmaster tools to give more granular control on the site with Google? Disabled feeds in case they are an issue?

    if the content is confidential you might want to make it only visible to logged in users that will turn the lights out completely as far as google is concerned as well.
