Test Environment is Searchable in Google / MS Bing

Hi all,

Do we have any known solution for our lower environments (Dev/Test) to hide them from search engine crawlers?
We have tried the meta tag (<meta name="robots" content="noindex">) and it worked in MS Bing but unfortunately after a week of being hidden it is now back again on the search results. Hope we have a standard way of doing this as lower environments are not really meant to be seen on the internet's search results. Please chime in if you have any suggestions. If no luck, we will need to contact each search engine to manually exclude our links.

Thank you!

You can contact OutSystems support for those types of questions. They can give you the best answer


Hi Niels,

I was wondering why you suggest to ask OutSystems on this matter. Did you do so in the past, and if so what was their proposed solution.
