Search engines are a powerful and easy tool to help connect your fans with your Presskit. However, if your Presskit contains information that is not ready to be released, like an upcoming album or tour, having your ‘kit show up in Google searches would not be ideal. With this in mind, we’ve now made it possible for you to hide your Presskit from search engines.How To: Hiding a New Presskit If you are creating a brand new Presskit, you can prevent your Presskit from showing up in search engines by going to your Presskit’s Settings in the control panel and checking the box that says, “Hide from Search Engines”.
This will allow people to only view the Presskit if they visit the specific URL for that ‘kit. Make sure to do this immediately upon creating your Presskit.
Pro Tip: Search engines take a day or two to process a newly indexed link and if you wait too long to check this box, your Presskit may show up in search results.
How To: Hiding an Existing Presskit If you have an existing Presskit that has already been indexed by Google or Bing you’ll want to check the same “Hide from Search Engines” check box and then send an email to us at email@example.com so that we can manually remove your URL from both search engines.
As always, if you need to completely remove your Presskit from the web for any period of time, you can set your Presskit to ‘Inactive’. You will see this image if you enter the URL:
At any point, you can make your Presskit active again by changing the status in the Settings. If you have any questions, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
