Blocking Content From Search Engine Indexing

    Is there any way to prevent search engines from indexing specific text on website pages? I built my site with Google Sites. I don't have access to the sitemap or the robots.txt file. However, I can insert html. Thanks.

    <meta name="robots" content="noindex">
    Code (markup):
    Beware that not all search engines obey this, but the big five of Google, Yahoo, Bing, Baidu, and Yandex should all obey it, not indexing the entire page if that's inside the document's <head>.

    In theory anything in the 'robots' meta behaves just like their robots.txt equivalent.

    PLEASE NOTE, there's no such thing as "index" or "follow", only "noindex" and "nofollow". Any time you see a robots.txt or robots meta with "index" or "follow" as values, they're put together by derps who know not the first damned thing about building websites, or blindly copied from same.
