Add "don't index" switch to pages

Right now to prevent a page from being indexed in a Webflow site it requires this custom code in the before </head> tag of the custom code area:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex">

It would be nice to have a toggle switch within page settings for each page that would stop a page from being indexed as well as from being added to the auto generated sitemap.xml file for Webflow hosted sites.

    Still would really love this :) Super frustrating to have to manually update the sitemap every time we post a blog or create a new page.

    The description on this wishlist item does not fully describe what the real issue is around how these types of pages show up in sitemap.xml files. This article ( was used as a reference to create this request here. Just adding this in for reference.

    This is so frustrating. We are discussing removing the auto generated sitemap so that we can dont' get a coverage error for page submitted but marked as noindex.

    Please add this asap. Having random collection items entering the sitemap is an SEO nightmare.

    Wow, I just tried Webflow for the first time, and I am honestly very surprised that there isn't a noindex-button like you would find in any Wordpress installation with a proper SEO plugin.

    Please add this feature!

    Your current solution with adding the code to the header is not great at all, especially on pages like all of our blog posts (shared template), where if I add it to one, it adds it to all, so now I have to put the individual pages in robots.txt which doesn't guarantee noindexing at all, and which is is a very messy method. 

    This is 2019 - it has been on your wishlist for more than 2 years - just fix it.

    oh look, another SEO / client dealbreaker that has been on the Webflow wishlist for well over 2 years. grr. Any update?

    Definitely needs to remove not indexed page from the sitemap. Otherwise Google Search Console report errors of sitemap urls that are forbidden to be crawled by the robots.txt

    Could you update this to also include adding rel=canonical tags on every page with the option to point the tag elsewhere?
