I got a message that my affiliate disclosure page was indexed on Google. I think i remember form Kyles lesson about me and affiliate disclosure should be set up in the AIO dashboard with the "no follow" attribute. Is this correct or am I mixing up some information?

Hey Roy,

What has been discovered that it really is no big deal if your pages like disclosures are indexed... or not, as Google will not punish you for having these indexed.

However, a professionally created website sets this sort of page up as noindex... and if you do that, then be sure to adjust your sitemap accordingly or suffer a prompt from Google Analytics that you've got a page as noindex displayed in your sitemap.

Having said that... IF you are using Google XML Sitemaps and you want to make those types of pages as NOINDEX, then here's how you can forgo Google's prompting you to fix your sitemap by being proactive: Hope you find this helpful.

So the disclosure does need to be indexed and do we put it as a page like the privacy policy and sorry I’m asking a question to your question

I have mine set to no follow but I allowed indexing so google knew it did indeed exist. We had a discussion on this topic in live chat some time ago and that seemed to be the consensus on how we should do it.

Hope that helps some!

Thanks Shannon! That was spot on :-) I will check my settings on the AIO dashboard again. I have recently updated my affiliated disclosure so that's why I got the message from Google
