    Hi,

    I would have not marked this as answered.

    Why do the search engines list my jotform contact form (and I assume whatever else I build using Jotform) as part of Jotform and not my domain? It SHOULD be listed as https://www.exit333designs.com/ContactExit333Designs.html

    And it lists all of the fields I added to the form in the search engine results!!

    The form is embedded on that page!

    I am subscribe to a paid plan.

    Since your email is sent using a noreply address ("Do get back to us if you have any questions.") I had to post another thread using your website.

    Please note that when you add a form, and ID is automatically generated for the form. Each form can be accessed with its own unique URL.

    If you want to display form in your website, you can embed form in your web page. When any user access your web page, they will see the embedded form. The following guide should help you how to embed form in your web page: https://www.jotform.com/help/34-embedding-a-form-to-a-web-page/

    If you want to access form using your own domain, it is also possible to taking advantage of our "Custom Domain" feature, but it is only available in Enterprise plan: https://www.jotform.com/enterprise/

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. As my colleague mentioned in the forum below, Google will try to index if the URL is available and your URL can be accessed from any internal/external links. To prevent Google from crawling and indexing again, please add the meta tag on your website.

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

    If you wish to remove the exiting URL from Google's index, you can send a request via Google Search Console.
