Are you looking for a way to hide a WordPress page from Google?

Sometimes you may need to exclude a page from appearing in Google search results as it is not relevant to your site’s content, to protect your privacy, or to keep away unwanted users.

In this article, we will show you how to hide a WordPress page from Google without affecting your site’s overall Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Why Hide a WordPress Post or Page from Google
Search engines like Google allow website owners to exclude content from search results.

You can hide WordPress blog posts and pages that don’t have any relevance to the general public such as a page you might have to create for website ownership verification.

Another situation where excluding WordPress pages from search results is beneficial is if you have a membership website. You can hide the profile pages of your members from appearing on search engines.

Hiding content from Google is also helpful if your website is under development, and you want to share a sneak preview with your audience. This way Google won’t index an unfinished website in its search results.

Besides that, excluding pages that have private or sensitive information helps to protect your privacy and prevent confidential information from falling into the wrong hands.
