We have a property site that contains approximately 5000 properties. The search facility and subsequent Filter mechanism has resulted in Google indexing over 400 000 pages.
Will adding noindex to our search results page prevent Google from indexing it, but still allow it to crawl and index the properties on that page?
I've noted the following question with this answer:
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow" />
From the answer it seems that it will allow what I'm looking for without the risk of suddenly loosing all my indexed properties? I.e. it will only remove the search results page but not the property pages.
