How to manage indexing of specific pages

Tech Support

Recommended Posts

KVS doesn't provide any specific GUI controls to manage indexing, as it is not virtually possible due to very custom theme structure. However you can get everything you need with a very few fixes.


Step 1. First of all you need to add noindex tag into site header template. Go to Website UI -> Page components -> include_header_general.tpl and add the following code somewhere inside its <head> section:

{{if $page_noindex=='true'}}
 <meta name="robots" content="noindex" />

This code check if there is a page variable named page_noindex and it is equal to true, then this page should not be indexed by SE.


Step 2. Set page_noindex variable anywhere you want this page to be not indexable:

{{assign var="page_noindex" value="true"}}

somewhere in page template around these values (the example is from Index page):



How do you find where to add it?

  • If you have KVS 5.3.0 or above, you should be able to see KVS Admin Toolbar at the bottom of each page and you can open page editor right from the toolbar menu.
  • If your KVS version doesn't support toolbar yet, just add ?debug=true to the URL you are looking at and it should open debugger that will print link to open page editor.
