    Hello Sathya,

    This options means something completely different. It means that your pages won't be indexed by search engines like Google, Bing, etc., not the internal search functionality of Sitefinity.

    I hope this explains it.

    Hello sir,

    I understand clearly. So If I want the page not to be indexed by both external(like Google or Bing) and internal(sitefinity) search functionality then what I need to do??

    Any suggestions will be really appreciated.
    Thanks,
    sathya

    Hi Sathya,

    Unfortunately at the moment it is not possible to specify that using the UI. There is a PITS feature request for that - here is the public URL -

    http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/sitefinity/5274 

    Meanwhile you can try to workaround this by implementing a custom search pipe - I believe you might find this blog post very useful

    All the best,
