    Hi, i am currently telling google to not index specific pages on my webshop like: Woocommerce register, cart, checkout pages. Is this smart to do? I dont see any reason for google to index them as there is no information on them and i have a feeling it will be better for the total SEO on my webshop to have them as no index.

    Not a big ranking factor but everything helps.

    What are you're thoughts on this?

    Thanks In Advance

    You can PM your website name.
    And I will help index your website.

    So far the index page with the url is very easy.
    But with the keyword index was quite difficult.

    Maybe you are looking for is the index by keyword, so that your website is on the order of thousands of behind

    I think OP doesn't have any problem his site being index. What he wants is to n0-index the pages with very thin content.

    Absolutely there are no issues in blocking such redundant pages. They offer no SEO value what so ever and on the other hand they might cause security issues. So it is always best to hide the admin login and other such pages from publicly getting indexed.

    Cheers!

    I don't see that helping rankings in any way. But it can prevent a panda slap by minimising the number of indexed thin-content pages.

    Yes you are right. But i think no need to wasting time to think about those pages we can de index those pages if that pages have copied content or it has any other issues...
