Exclude a site from Google and other search results

Prior to publicly launching a new site, you may want to exclude the entire site from search results. 

Under Website > Site settings you will find a series of selectable options which will enable or disable certain features across your entire site. 

Uncheck the box next to “Allow search engines” and then click the Save site button. This will prevent your site from appearing in Google search results and other search engine results. 

Once your site development is complete, be sure to return to Website > Site settings, check the box next to "Allow search engines" and click the Save site button. No pages on your site will be displayed in search results if that box remains unchecked.
