Preventing from Author/Tag/Categories pages to be created

Hello, general WordPress question: i have noticed that WordPress automatically creates pages for Author/Tags/Categories. How can I prevent these from being created?

Also as a separate question, I have a page that I do want to be on my website but I do not want it to show on google results. How do I prevent the page from appearing on Google while still staying live on my website?

Thanks a lot,

Ronan

    Hello Ronan,

    Thanks for posting on the forums.

    For google to not sync your site page you can follow the article here : https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93710?hl=en

    You can also use our Infinite SEO plugin for SEO purpose and set one page to noindex in the SEO settings.

    Are they being created as separate pages ? I hope they are not. They are called archives which have templates.

    You can simply redirect them to any other page of your choice. There is an article here http://jesin.tk/redirect-wordpress-archives/

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers
