Meta NOINDEX is better than Blocking Robots

Hello Friends, welcome back to the blog; today I come with topics why Meta NOINDEX is better than blocking search engines by robots. As you all know about these two properties of Search Engine Optimization but let me explain it first for new webmasters.

Meta is property that webmaster keep in head tags of a HTML webpage that helps Search Engines to know basic facts about the site.

Example of Meta Property, the given meta property is called description:
<meta content='Something about the page' name='description'/>

Robot or called as Robots.txt is another property of SEO that helps the crawlers of different search engines helps in knowing whether are the areas to crawl and what are areas not to be crawled by them.

Example of Robots.txt (Our Robot text):

So, the question arises why should I not to be use Robots txt for blocking robots or why Meta NOINDEX is better. The answer is very simple and clear but first known How Blocking works.

How Blocking by Robots.txt works:

I have researched about the web and do work most on my own site for researches. I have found Robots.txt only block the robots from been crawling the desired place but can't able to restrict the bots from indexing the URL of the page or specific section. Thus, they add these URLs and can let the searchers of the web to find them without having any snippet, title, and other properties.

How Meta NOINDEX works:

Meta NOINDEX lets the crawlers to crawl the page and get the information of the page, but due to the noindex tag the search engines does not include the page in their search results and users are unable to search for them or unable to find them.

SEO Effect:

I use to block bots from crawling the specific pages and sections of my site and it does advert effects on my site. Search Engine does all the above given function and they found results to be similar of many pages like Category (Label) Pages and Search Result Pages.

I have found the following statement from Google, and now I am using NOINDEX that is quite effective and doesn't leave any bad effects over SEO.

In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the 260 already displayed.If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included.

I would like to suggest you using NOINDEX rather than blocking section of your web via Robots.txt.
