Are gitlab pages indexed by search engines?


#1

Hi folks,
I’m using Gitlab Pages to deploy a test environment. Nothing confidential, but it’s WIP stuff.
My question is : are gitlab pages indexed by search engines?

I can’t find any mention of this in the Gitlab pages documentation.

Thanks,

It’s a good question. I want to add, are GitLab issues (closed issues) indexed too?

I support an open community and it will be very conveniently.

GitLab uses a robots.txt file https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ee/blob/master/public/robots.txt, all issues should be indexed.

GitLab Pages is deployed differently and it doesn’t have a robots file. It should be indexed automatically, right?

I agree. It seems I don’t need to generate my own robots.txt additionally.

@axil Thank you so much!
