Product Updates: May 2024

Hide profile from google search results

We implemented a feature in our crew and yacht profiles so members can choose to hide their profiles from google search results.

This can be turned on by ticking the checkbox ‘Hide my profile from search engines’ at the bottom of the create crew profile - about page and create yacht profile - about pages.

This will mark the page as ‘noindex’ for search engines. This won’t necessarily hide the profile from all search engines, but this is recognised by google. If you have had a profile visible on MySail for a while the page may already be indexed, meaning it will not be immediately removed by ticking this checkbox. If you have questions or need help with this, you can email us at
