    We recently noticed some of our complete forms with confidential information are publicly viewable and are showing up on Google Searches. I would like to keep the forms private - accessible only through email and hidden from search engines. 

    How do 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"  rel="nofollow">Form Link</a>

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Thank you!
