or an possibility to add own meta tags
Maybe makes sense to set this by default anyway?
If not, maybe rather allow plugins to define meta tags and implement it as a plugin and publish it on the marketplace
by default anonymous user has no access, so it should block search engines from finding the content I don't think we want it in core as it's good to index the login pages of Piwik (for example they link to piwik.org)
+1 for doing it in a plugin
So why closing this issue when we could build a plugin? I still think this is actually very useful for users.
@tsteur good point thanks for pointing out!
Hi, this issue should be re-evaluated. See my post here: #8036 Its about preveting for googling for piwik installations.
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"> on Installation pages, Updater pages, Reporting UI pages, Admin pages, and others if any
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow"> on the Login form.
just wanted comment on mattabs comment above: "it's good to index the login pages of Piwik (for example they link to piwik.org)"
of course from seo point of view (backlinks) I could understand that.
From security point of view an easy to find login page is not that great. One could e.g. easily do the following thing - FULLY AUTOMATED: 1) search for login page 2) start brute force attack 3) when you are successful: look for ecommerce 4) extract /download everything 5) make a database of ecommerce data 6) sell it to everyone (competitors)
on other systems their is a great effort to hide login page with the following: - of course for every visitor: noindex, no follow, no archive - have a possibility to easily change login url within the backend
so I would strongly vote for noindex, no follow, no archive also for login page
