By checking the ‘Search Engine Visibility’ option in the ‘Settings > Reading’ section and enabling ‘Search Engine Visibility: Discourage search engines from indexing this site,’ you can prevent search engines from indexing your content. This can be useful for staging sites, private content, or when you’re not ready to share your website with the world.
