For any plan, Cloudinary supports adding a custom header of X-Robots-Tag (https://developers.google.com/webmasters/control-crawl-index/docs/robots_meta_tag).
You can add
headers=>"X-Robots-Tag: noindex" to all of your uploads for this to be applied.
For our Advanced plan and above, we can add this setting globally. Please reach out to our support team for further details here.
In addition, you can add
noimageindex to your pages (https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/79892?hl=en).
how can I add this header to all already uploaded files/images in a folder?
Hi Fabian, sorry for the very late reply. You can add the headers to already existing resources using the Explicit API -> 'headers' parameter.
For customers using their own domain to host images , If your images are already indexed, you can claim your domain on Google Webmaster Tools and remove them with that tool. Also, for Cloudinary Enterprise accounts, you can set your own custom robots.txt.
noindex header for Fetch method would be ideal and is in my bucket list :-)
Hi Brian - You could use a script to update your existing resources via the API Roee mentioned above, or use noimageindex on the HTML pages which include your images, that should provide the same effect.
