Google all the time indexing matomo. I have website and matomo is installed into subdomain of main domain. What values should be in robot.txt?
Hi there, I recommend you search for
disallow search engine crawling or similar in your favourite search engine. If you are using a somewhat recent version of Matomo, we also disallow Matomo being indexes through Meta tags
Yes I know that but how should this file looks like?
Matomo domain is subdomain.example.com
So in robot txt I should att this?:
And where this file should be placed? In main domain or matomo subdomain?
@MESWEB I'd recommend you to make sure you are using the latest Matomo version as it contains a line like this
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">
that tells search engines to not index this page.
@Findus23 Yes I do. I have Matomo 3.13.0
This line is visible on login page but google all the time index this subdomain.
I was reading somewhere about google indexing and someone says:
Google is indexing even if content nofollow and noindex is added to html code because some website can link to this url. So he's recommend using robot.txt file.
