Losing Traffic: How Do I noindex Tags & Categories?


(Harsh Agrawal) #1

Hey Guys
How do I noindex Tags & categories. Losing my traffic due to duplicate Meta Description & low-quality content.

I suggest deleting those tags and using categories. If the tags are low value, stop creating low value tags.

@codinghorror
Any other solution apart from the above? Robots.txt method??

I don’t believe we have any method of overriding robots.txt at this time, so your best option is to remove the low value tags. If they are low value to google they are also low value to your users.

Did you checkout what Google is seeing in Google Webmaster Tools? Or have you been and done that already?
