With the Subscribers Only plugin activated, subscribers to your site will have access to Private posts or pages. Consider setting a post or page to Private for any areas of the site where you would not want Google to index. For example, a page that lists links to copyrighted materials that would never be publicly available.
To make a post/page private:

  1. Make sure the Subscribers Only and Private Content Login Redirect* plugins are active
  2. Edit the page/post you want to make private
  3. In the Publish block click Edit next to Visibility
  4. Set the visibility to Private
  5. Click OK and Update the post/page



Note: * the Private Content Login Redirect plugins redirects users to login if they try to access a protected resource.
