    Hi Brajesh

    Just saw a recent query about Google and just wanted to confirm that presumably BuddyBlog Group posts which are posted in a private group won’t be indexed by Google either? Or are there any additional steps I should take to prevent this.

    With many thanks in advance.
    Nik

    Hi Nik,
    If you are using a seo plugin, these post urls might get indexed but the content will not be visible for private group posts.

    Regards

    Thank you Brajesh. That’s interesting…

    1. Does that mean that the title and excerpt could potentially show up in Google? Or is Google “intelligent” enough to work out that the link itself can’t be reached and therefore result won’t display at all?

    2. Would it be better NOT to be using an seo plugin? I’d assumed that would give added protection (eg. by not allowing groups to be indexed at all) but maybe that’s not the case?

    Regards
    Nik

    Hi Nik,
    Thank you for the reply.

    There is a better and easier way around if you are using an SEO plugin. Most of these plugin allow you to exclude post types from indexing.
    so, add the relevant post types to exclusion and things should be fine. If you are not using any seo plugin, there is not much to worry about.

    Regards
    Brajesh
