Index / Follow Issue

Post by johnsmith0251 » Wed May 01, 2019 8:42 pm

On a few of my pages I have my page settings set to noindex / nofollow. However, when I preview or publish - then view the source code, I find that it shows as index / follow.

Any reason why this would happen?

Maybe you have set something different in the master page?

Good call!

I'll check!

Will the master page settings will always override the individual page settings?

Yes, for master frames. Not for master pages.

No, "master frames" is not the same as "embedded page".

Yes, if you need different settings.

I use a content holder on the master page. I tried to search master frame in the help section but could not find it.

What is the difference between master frame and master page?
