Best way to noindex tags?

Hello!

I wish google don't index the tags because of SEO. I've been looking for info in the forum but it's not very clear to me.

There are many people who say that blocking the tags in the robots.txt is a bad idea.

I have also seen this post https://xenforo.com/community/threa...gy-for-my-xf-board.129321/page-2#post-1290258 where it says to add noindex in "tag_view" but I have looked at the file and there is no <head>, would it work the same?

What do you think is the best way?
Thanks :)

Hello arn,

So, if i put this <xf:head option="robots"><meta name="robots" content="noindex" /></xf:head> inside "tag_view" google won't index tags?

Thank you :)

Double check to see those meta tags appear where you want them to, but yeah if so, google won’t index them.
