Hiding External Links From Search Engines
Hiding external links from search engines helps to discourage spammers from posting links on your site. If you turn this option on, any URLs inserted in pages and comments will be given the 'nofollow' attribute, which prevents search engines from following them.
Shortcut links (e.g. CONF-2622@JIRA) and internal links to other pages within Confluence are not tagged.
To hide external links from search engines:
- Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration
- Click 'Security Configuration' in the left panel.
- This will display the 'Security Configuration' screen. Click 'Edit'.
- Check the 'Hide External Links From Search Engines' checkbox.
- Click the 'Save' button.
