When I add AdSense code to my webpage, I noticed that AdSense has a meta robots tag like below:

<meta content="noindex,noarchive,nofollow" name="robots">

My page has no other meta robots tags. Would this negatively affect SEO for my page?

Should I add a meta robots tag with index,follow to my page?

Where does it add that ? I believe you looked in the iframe that the Adsense code generates. If this is the case, then your website won't be affected. They add that because they don't want search engines to crawl their ads or index their iframe contents.

  • yes its inside iframe it will case issue for my page right? bcoz i didn't add any meta robots

  • It doesn't matter if it's in the iframe. That iframe is a different website. Nov 25, 2013 at 15:54
