I want my images to not appear on Google image search results.

    Thanks Itay,

    how can I add this header to all already uploaded files/images in a folder?

  • Roee Ben Ari

    Hi Fabian, sorry for the very late reply. You can add the headers to already existing resources using the Explicit API -> 'headers' parameter.

  • Ran Rubinstein

    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 :-)

  • Stephen Doyle

    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.

    Google skips the noimageindex parameter. Some of the images it has indexed despite having it on the web page. 😟

    Hi Daniel, I'm sorry for the delayed response. Since this is a Google feature, if it's not working as expected, I recommend reaching out to Google support for further assistance.

    Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.
