Making a Newsroom private

Hide the your Newsroom from search engines so only people who have the link can access it

You can easily avoid search engines to crawl your newsrooms, in case you want to publish content that should not be searchable of findable in the web. This is a good option for creating Newsrooms with sensitive content, such as dark or crisis newsrooms.

Making your Newsroom private

Access your newsroom settings page, by clicking on Stories > Selecting the Newsroom you want to make private > Click on the Newsroom Settings tab.

In the newsroom settings page, click on Analytics and Visibility, and click on the option Make my newsroom private.

After that, your whole newsroom will be hidden from Google and other search engines. 

💡Pro Tip: If you want to make your room public again, simply return to the same page and select Make my Newsroom public
