    I want to participate in link exchange schemes, but I don't want google to see the page with the links...

    This will be for websites that do not wish to be linked to for Google but simply for traffic purposes, genuine resource for humans.

    So how can I prevent Google from seeing the page with all the outbound links on it? I don't want to use the nofollow on individual links, I want to completely hide the page from search engines.

    Change your robot texts:

    Examples of bot control:

    Code:
    # Allow Google Image bot on entire site
    User-agent: Googlebot-Image
    Disallow:
    
    # Allow Google AdSense bot on entire site
    User-agent: Mediapartners-Google
    Disallow:
    
    # Allow Google Adwords bot on entire site
    User-agent: Adsbot-Google
    Disallow:
    
    # Allow Googlebot for mobile on entire site
    User-agent: Googlebot-Mobile
    Disallow:
    
    # Googlebot - Disallow all URLs with query string parameters, allow the rest
    User-agent: Googlebot 
    Disallow: /*?
    
    # Any other bot not listed above - disallow wp-admin and wp-include directories
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/
    
    Sitemap: http://mysiteurl/sitemap.xml.gz
    You don't need all this just disallow w/e google bot on w/e page you want.



    MEta works fine as well.
