Preventing indexing by Google

    I am building a website but will have PLR initially while setting it up. After having the site up and ready I will be rewriting content and making it 80% unique.

    Before all the articles are made unique I don't want Google to index the site.
    SEMrush
    What are the different ways to ensure that? Then once I am done making the articles unique how do I tell Google to index it?

    If you are using wordpress you go to the settings>privacy> and then click the buttom that says "allow search engines to find site." Once you have the info you want to end up with simply go a change that back to where you want it. Hope this helps.

    you need a file called robots.txt in the main folder of your website. Then you need to write some stuff in which i forgot but you can be more specific to search engines like make not scan a folder. Once you want google and other search engines to scan your website you remove the robots.txt file.

    - You can prevent indexing of your site by Robot.txt
    - Don't submit it to Google ( webmaster & other )
    - You can use "No follow" attribute

    You could add either a robots.txt file with the following instructions:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    Or add the following noindex tag site-wide immediately below the <title> tag, whatever's easiest:
    <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW">

    There are small differences between the workings of the robots.txt file and meta tags that are too long to go into detail here. My personal preference is for the meta tag because it is the most effective at keeping all content beyond Google's reach.
