Is there a way in the Admin panel to hide my DNN site from coming up in Google Search results?

Google recommends submit removal request + upload robots.txt to restrict crawling my site.
I have done the first but do not want to add robots file since this we use a shared hosting portal.

And is there a way to make sure new portals that are created DO NOT get listed on search engines?
I found my site on google and i dont remember ever submitting it....

What you can do is adding a meta tag Robots NIINDEX to all your pages.

see here for more info :


DNN include automaticaly a :


on all pages.

So you have to alter this.

You can do this with my new module OpenUrlRewriter with just one checkbox.

It's beta and only tested on dnn 6 and 7.

Otherwise you can try to do it with the skinobject from Timo :

Witch can remove and add meta tags on pages.

If you want SOME sites indexed by Google and others excluded, you can modify the SKIN file applied and have code added to the Head section to exclude.

<script runat="server">
    Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
            Dim descriptionHtmlMeta As New HtmlMeta()
            descriptionHtmlMeta.Name = "robots"
            descriptionHtmlMeta.Content = "noindex, noarchive, nofollow"
    End Sub
