Custom Robots Header Tags and Purpose
There are basic terms about custom robots header tags that you should know before we proceed with this article.

1. all – Setting up this tag, crawlers will not be bound by any constraints. They can freely crawl, index and expose your content easily.

2. noindex – You can use this feature if you don’t want to make your blog public. Even if you don’t share the URL of your personal blog with anybody, chances are people will come to it from search results. So in this instance, you can use noindex tag as it prevents search engines from indexing the pages of your sites.

3. nofollow – Nofollow and dofollow tags are for outbound links. Dofollow is the default robot tag for all your outbound links. That means the search engines can sneak upon the pages you linked to. If you don’t want search bots to look through your links, addition of a nofollow tag must help you to achieve your aim.

4. none – none combines the features of both noindex and nofollow tags. The crawlers will neither index your pages nor skim through the links if you use this feature on blogspot.

5. noarchive – You might have noticed a cached label with most of the website links on SERPs. It shows that Google has captured a copy of your site into their server to display in case it goes down. That is to say that, the noarchive tag turns off cached version in search pages.

6. nosnippet – The text snippets in search results help people find what’s on the webpage. If you want to keep the content exclusive, you can turn this header tag on on your blog.

7. noodp – Open Directory Project or Dmoz is a man-made directory of websites. Google use the information from there sometimes. You can decide to turn this feature off with this tag if you desire.

8. notranslate – If you want to disable translation on your site,t hen can use notranslate for the exact purpose.
