How to disable sharing and Google indexing?

As a Publuu user, you can create multiple flipbooks with various content. It is understandable that sometimes you want to protect some personal data or sensitive content you’ve created.

You can protect your content using multiple ways available at Publuu, but this time we focus on disabling sharing and Google indexing your online flipbooks.



If you want to prevent sharing your flipbook anywhere on the web since its content is private, you need to turn off the sharing option.

To do so, first, log in to your account and click the CUSTOMIZE button to enter the editor.

Remember to press the SAVE button when you finish editing your flipbook to save all the changes.



Any flipbook you create with Publuu is indexed by Google by default, meaning it is shown in Google search results. In general, Google indexing helps to gain more exposure on Google, which will lead to more visitors and customers. However, sometimes you create sensitive content that you don’t want to be indexed by search engines. Publuu then allows you to disable the Google indexing function for any flipbook.
