How to prevent data from being posted on google search?


I have a database. Inside, a database with data from multiple people. I have a scheduling system. In it are placed all the data of the person + day / hour of the scheduling. The problem is that this data can be viewed on google if I search the name + site name. Should I prevent access to this page by restricting IP? What procedures should I take?

Use the following HTML meta tags on pages that should not be indexed in search engines:

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

Edited : Setting robots.txt only will not remove your page from   google indexes.

  • Robots.txt: Does not allow a search engine to receive content from a given page.
  • Meta tag robots: Allows access to content but does not allow indexing of this content.

In short, make use of both techniques, using robots.txt and meta robots , but if the page was already indexed, we recommend using Google Tool for Removing URLs
