Situation 1: I am having a website and I want to block specific page i.e. testimonial page from indexing over search engine.

In such case I will use the below code in the Header section of that page.

<meta name =”robots” content=”noindex, nofollow”>
This meta tag will protect your page from indexing in search engine.
To block page in Google only use the below code:
<meta name=”googlebot” content=”noindex, nofollow”>

Situation 2: I want to index my website tech blog page i.e. In such case use the below code:

<meta name=”robots” content=”noindex, follow”>

Here, my page will be indexed and link juice will be followed.

Now, what is the difference between “nofollow” and “dofollow” attribute.

Nofollow – Nofollow attribute don’t allow search engine spider to follow the link and this restrict crawler/search engine spider to pass the link juice. In such case only traffic diverted not the link juice.

Dofollow – Dofollow attribute allow search engine crawler to pass the link juice and weightage of the link will be passed to the linking url.

If you don’t specify the follow/nofollow attribute, it will treat follow attribute by default.

Linking attribute:

<a href=”” rel=”nofollow”>
<a href=”” rel=”follow”>
