    I see no need for notices to be indexed in search so removing bots view is a simple way to do it.

    Would you be able to elaborate?

    Unfortunately it isn't really possible to hide content from bots, nor is it recommended from an SEO perspective to show different content to bots vs humans as this practice is usually penalised.

    Well I have installed showcase addon as it doesn't have a meta description tag search engines are relying on onpage content for description.
    The notices on my site are above the actual page content and enabled for all the pages, so search engines are indexing that first.Every item that I create has the same notice content as its description.
