    Some of the forms we have created are showing in google search results. We want to remove these forms from ranking, and be able to control which forms do and don't rank. How can I do this?

    Once you embed a form to your website, it will be possible to be searched and would be available online to be indexed by Google or any other search engines.

    If you want to hide the form from search engines, you can add noindex and nofollow robots meta tag to the web pages with embedded forms.

    <meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow">

    You can also add the parameter rel="nofollow" to the form links. Here's an example below:

    <a target="_blank" href="http://form.jotformpro.com/form/1234567890" rel="nofollow noopener" rel="nofollow noopener"  rel="nofollow">Form Link</a>

    If you have any further questions please let us know.

    Thank you!
