Subject: Is my site currently being indexed by search engines?
Hello,

I've recently installed DokuWiki and have added content to my site, I checked the source code and noticed this line of code

<meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" />

I thought that you wanted "NoIndex, NoFollow" when you didn't want your site to be found by Google or other crawlers.  So my question is (1) Is my site currently not being indexed by search engines, and if so (2) where do you control this?

I looked in the Admin Configure settings but didn't see anything that was clear.  I did in in the Anti Spam section there was some nofollow set there so I didn't want to touch it.  My goal is to have my site indexed though and found on search engines.  Any help in this area would be appreciated.

Regards,
Matt

This older thread looks relevant:

Quote by raulih:
I have a problem that main page and other basedir level pages prevent indexing in search engines. Their HTML source code has this line:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow" />

I think andi points towards some useful info in his response to that thread. Unfortunately, those links don't seem to be working any more, so I hunted around on dokuwiki.org itself to find where they might have moved to. Try these instead:


Look forward to hearing whether are those are helpful to you.
