Preventing search engines from indexing user profiles

You can prevent search engines from indexing user profiles by following the instructions below.

Note that users who haven't logged in will also not be able to view the profiles. They'll be asked to log in or sign up when they try to view a user's profile.

  1. Log in to your Website Toolbox account.
  2. Click the Users link
  3. In the Users menu, click the Group Permissions link.
  4. Click on the Manage link next to the Not Signed Up / Not Logged In user group.
  5. In the Manage menu, click Permissions.
  6. Scroll the page down and uncheck the box next to View Profiles under General.
  7. Save your settings.
