< Template:NOINDEX
This is a documentation subpage for Template:NOINDEX.
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.
To view the template page itself, see Template:NOINDEX.


This template adds __NOINDEX__, which may remove the page from some search engines and automatically categorizes pages in Category:Noindexed pages. By default, it displays no content.


|visible = yes – makes the template display a line of plain text to inform editors that the page is excluded from search engine indexing:

This page has been removed from search engines' indexes.


Note: to avoid unexpected results or unnecessary duplication, always wrap this template in:
<noinclude>...{{noindex}}..</noinclude> tags.

Make sure you are familiar with the different ways noindexing is done.

__NOINDEX__ is disabled in Category namespace and this template consequently has no effect there.

Note: major search engines should respect the NOINDEX tag, but it may take days or even weeks for content already indexed to be removed from them.
