What are custom robots headers tags?


Custom robot header tags are very important for your blogger and therefore you need to make sure that your blog gets indexed based on these header tags.

In blogger, there are almost 10 custom robots header tags. They are the following:

  1. all
  2. noindex
  3. nofollow
  4. none
  5. noarchive
  6. nosnippet
  7. noodp
  8. notranslate
  9. noimageindex
  10. unavailable_after


Let's have a look on the blogger setting headers tags:


  • All- if you tick on this tag google will freely crawl all your pages and posts without any boundation, Note: If it is explicitly listed, then this directive is the default and has no effect.


  • Noindex- Now all your sites and pages are for index and if you want to hide these articles from the search engine you can use the noindex tag to particular posts.


  • Nofollow- nofollow tags are outbound links, if you don't want to include any of the links to the search engine and you can add nofollow attribute to the link and Google will automatically not include the link in the search engine.


  • None-Equivalent to noindex, nofollow its just means crawlers will not index your pages or review links.

  • Noarchive tag tells Google not to store a cached copy of your page.it means Do not show a “Cached” link in search results.


  • Nosnippet are those that display internal text from a webpage. If you do not want to show the snippet for a particular page, then adding nosnippet tag will help you to do this.


  • Noodp does not use metadata from the Open Directory Project for the title or snippet shown for this page. But as of now, The Open Directory Project is closed in the year 2017.


  • Notranslate-Many of the web pages and queries are translated into search engine results. If you want to disable the translation of your web page, add a do not translate tag.


  • Noimageindex-Using this tag allows search engines to de-index images in search engines results page. Don't forget images can also drive traffic to your blog.


  • Unavailable_after-Does not show this page in search results after the specified date/time. it means the post will be unavailable after a specific time.
