Noindex Tag Checker

Check your website to determine if the robots meta tag is being used to block indexing by search engines.

What is Noindex Tag Checker?

The Noindex Tag Checker is a free tool for determining if the robots meta tag has been implemented on a website to prevent it from being indexed by search engines.

What is Meta Robots Tag?

Using meta robots tags, you can tell search engines to skip certain pages while indexing the whole site, or to just crawl certain pages.

Valid Meta Robots Tags Directives

Following are the parameters that can be used in robots meta directives and will be understood by and followed by search engine crawlers.


A shortcut for "follow" or "index," typically the default setting. When instructed, it accomplishes absolutely nothing.


Do not include this web page, its associated media, or any associated resource in the search results.


This instructs a search engine not to follow any of the links on a page.


The same as "nofollow" and "noindex."


Do not show a cached link of this page on a search results.


This option disables the search engine's in-page search features for your site.


Stops search engines from showing page previews (video or text) and cached versions (where available) in search results. However, unless the noimageindex meta tag is also included, snippets may still show a small preview image.


If a page is embedded in another page using an iframe or similar HTML elements, Google will still index the content of the embedded page even if the embedded page has a noindex directive.


This option disables the translation of the page in search engine results.


Search engines are prevented from indexing images on this page. However, search engines will still index images that are linked to directly from external sources.

How to fix noindex pages?

Remove the noindex meta tag from the page's HTML code if you want search engines to index it. This is required if you want your website to show up in search engine results.

A developer may be needed to achieve this, as they will need access to the HTML code on the front end. Some content management systems (CMS) offer a setting that disables indexing, which should be disabled.
