**Notes
  • Performing the following steps will cause an entire site to no longer be indexed by search engines. For help with only removing individual pages, read this article: BB449241.
  • The following steps will only prevent search engine crawlers from indexing a site moving forward. It does nothing to remove pages that have already been indexed and are returning results. Contact the individual search engines for steps to have pages removed from their indexing.



A robots.txt file can be used to prevent search engine bots from crawling your site.



If Blackbaud does not host NetCommunity:
In the %install%\Netcommunity folder, add a robots.txt file with the following content:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

Save the file, and the next time your site is crawled by a search engine the pages should be removed.
