Major search engines locating anonymous access spaces (Cloud)

If I enable anonymous access to a space in a Confluence Cloud, is it possible that the contents of this space will get picked up by a search engine bot (Google, Bing, etc)?

Is there any mechanism to prevent this?

Hi Jeremy,

That is correct. If you make your Cloud site anonymous, Search Engines are able to index it.

At this time, you wouldn't be able to add a robots.txt file like you could on your own server, but we have a feature request to improve this behavior:

Please vote on that if it's something you'd also like to see, and watch it in order to be updated of any changes.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Kind Regards,
