Google seems to only index javascript, and not the content, of pages in Confluence cloud

I set up a new Confluence cloud instance a few days ago. So far Google has indexed three pages of the site, but it seems it is only seeing the javascript. The results are showing no actual page content, and the cached copy of the pages is only showing a confluence icon, and no actual content from the pages.



Google search:

However I have seen a couple of other cloud sites where it seems google is indexing the content.  For example:

Bump....  Does anyone have an idea on this?  Confluence in the cloud is not too useful to me if the content I am putting in the wiki is not going to get indexed properly. 

I have the same problem. We have public documentation, but it cannot be found through Google, obviously because Google has only this javascript trash in his cache. For other pages, Google states "No information is available for this page". Most of our Confluence pages are not indexed at all.

Have you found a solution in the meantime? Did you get in contact with Atlassian regarding this problem?
