    Hi cornelius_butler

    Hope you're having wonderful New Year holidays!

    Yes, free version of the Yoast SEO plugin has such option. In order to prevent a certain page from being indexed, you will need to open page editor, find Yoast SEO block on the editor page, then switch it to Advanced tab and set Allow search engines to show this Post in search results? -> No

    Hope this helps :slight_smile:

    Kind regards,
