Is there a way to prohibit to be listed on Google?


I want to create dashboard only for internal.
So, I should prohibit to be listed on Google.
Let me know how to do this?


Edit robots.txt

Make sure that that dashboard is not accesible for users that doesn’t meet the criteria to watch it, because the robots.txt asks google not to index the page and google usually respect that, but there are another search engines that don’t, so don’t relay only on that to protect your page. And it doesn’t keep your page out of google in every circunstance.

I recommend you to read this:

From the link above:

A robots.txt file tells search engine crawlers which pages or files the crawler can or can’t request from your site. This is used mainly to avoid overloading your site with requests; it is not a mechanism for keeping a web page out of Google. To keep a web page out of Google, you should use noindex directives, or password-protect your page.

Good question. My approach to keeping admin pages secret is below. If there’s anything I’m missing please do speak up.

  1. Ensure the admin page is not listed in the sitemap (I unchecked the page in the Bubble sitemap settings).
  2. Do not include the page as disallowed in the robots.txt file. If you are trying to keep it secret, then naming it in a public robots.txt file will expose the page name to anyone who wants to find it. (Robots.txt does make sense, however, for public pages you don’t want crawled.)
  3. Ensure that no public pages link to it, since Google will crawl your public pages looking for links to other pages.
  4. Use a non-obvious name to prevent someone from guessing the name.

On top of this, it’s still important to do all of your privacy settings, in case someone does come across the page.


I think “keeping it a secret” is different to “not wanting it to show up in search results”.

I tend to call admin pages dsajkcjsayefn rather than admin or dashboard :slight_smile:
