    I'm blogging at WordPress and I'm just wondering if it is possible to hide a particular post from search engine crawlers.
    I am aware that it is possible but I don't know how. Do I have to access the Webmaster Tools or I can just get a plugin or such?

    This code on the robots.txt will prevent any search engine to index that link. the robots.txt should be in the root of your site.

    Code:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /your-post-link-here/
    
    "your-post-link-here' depends upon the permalink type you've set.
