    Can I hide my form from the internet?

    Asked by nigew on April 01, 2015 at 08:16 AM

    I have created an order form for private clients. I do not want this form to be publicly available or to be found by search engines. Is this possible?

    You could do that by adding the correct meta rules on your page, which I see that were added to it, but they are not correctly added.

    You can see more here:

    <meta name="keywords" content="<meta name=robots content=noindex> noindex">

    that should be 2 different keywords:

    <meta name="keywords" content="the, list, of, keywords">
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex">

    You could achieve the same by setting the robots.txt on your server to not index any of the pages on your website.

    to do that just add this code to your robots.txt:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    All of my instincts are telling that you should not do that, but that is because your website will no longer be listed in the SERPs

    You will however need to wait for around 3 months or so to see the index being dropped out of SERPs, but you should also be able to do that from within the webmasters tools on Bing and Google.

    We can however not provide you further assistance with this since this would need to be handled by your webmaster.
