Prevent PDF from being indexed

Post by protectourlands » Mon Oct 28, 2019 1:51 pm

I have a link to a pdf on a web page. I want to prevent Google and other search engines from indexing the page and especially the pdf. I have set the page to noindex, nofollow. Will this do it? Or do I have to write additional tags? Any advice would be appreciated.

A few ways are use one the following "robots.txt" <meta name=”robots” content=”noindex”>
<meta name=”robots”content=”noindex,nofollow”> From Google
