Prevent Search Bots from Indexing Search Results

In the <head> section of your header.php file:

<?php if(is_search()) { ?>
   <meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" /> 
<?php }?>

  1. This piece of code seems to be very useful. I never thought about this before, but yes, I definitely don’t want my search results page to be followed by robots.

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

```
<div>Example code</div>
```

You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you. If anything screws up, contact us and we can fix it up for you.

*May or may not contain any actual "CSS" or "Tricks".
