Can I prevent my career page to be indexed by search engines please.

Edit: Just an option button will be enough. It is available in WordPress too, it is not something new.

If you don't mind me asking, why? – Jon Seigel Mar 7 '11 at 0:12
I have a unique full-name, when people search me on Google I don't want to give all my career information. I want to be seen only from the links which I will list in related web sites. It is not other peoples' job. – ilhan Mar 7 '11 at 0:47

This looks feasible. We'll work on it.

For reference: http://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_Privacy_SubPanel

Update 11 Mar: We've implemented a basic version of this.

You will find a checkbox to "Instruct search engines not to index my profile" alongside your other preferences for job search status.

This will add a robots noindex meta tag, which Google and other search engines should respect.

Oh thanks, I'm very happy right now :) From now on I can use my correct last name. – ilhan Apr 3 '11 at 1:30
Does this option keep search engines blocked if I make my careers profile public? Has it been improved since then? – metalnoise Sep 5 at 6:30
