There are four ways to make your site invisible in search engine results:

  1. blocking page indexing,
  2. blocking page crawling,
  3. password-protecting the page,
  4. completely removing the site from the search engine index.

Using solution #3. your site will not be visible in Google, but people you trust will still be able to get to it with both of the following conditions:

  • knowing the URL leading to the site and pasting it into the search engine,
  • knowing the password.

FAQ - Password-protected page:

Is a password-protected page visible on Google and other search engines?

A site with a password is not visible to visitors from a search engine.

This is because setting a password prevents search engine robots (involved in indexing pages) from accessing the page. Then they cannot scan or index it, making it invisible to users.

Can setting up a password for a site be undone?

Yes. In BOWWE, you can assign and remove a password from any subpage with a few clicks.

Can a URL link access a password-protected site?

Yes, but the visitor still needs to know the password to get to the site and see its content - without it, he won't be able to do anything. He will only see the following view:
