#5616 closed defect (fixed)

Empty docs pages should be noindexed

Reported by: jonoaldersonwp Owned by: dd32
Milestone: Priority: lowest
Component: Handbooks Keywords: seo


Empty docs pages, like https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/docs/, should be noindex'd.

Ideally, they'd (also, as part of a preventative process) be made not-public, and existing examples should be deleted and redirected (or 410'd).
