Search Engines Indexation
By default your Forgejo installation will be indexed by search engines. If you don’t want your repository to be visible for search engines read further.
To make Forgejo serve a custom
robots.txt (default: empty 404) for top level installations,
create a file called
robots.txt at the root of the
CustomPath as displayed in the
Examples on how to configure the
robots.txt can be found at https://moz.com/learn/seo/robotstxt.
User-agent: * Disallow: /
If you installed Forgejo in a subdirectory, you will need to create or edit the
robots.txt in the top level directory.
User-agent: * Disallow: /forgejo/
If the archive files are crawled, they will be generated dynamically
and kept around which can amount to a lot of disk. To prevent that
from happening, add the following to the
User-agent: * Disallow: /*/*/archive/
