Remember back in the day when WordPress would notify you via a banner in the admin if you had ‘Discourage Search Engines’ enabled? The Discourage Search Engines Notifier doesn’t bring back the banner, but it does put an icon in the WordPress admin bar.
This is extremely handy for when your site is in development. Chance are you enable the ‘Discourage Search Engines’ checkbox so that it didn’t appear in Google before you were ready. But then, when you do go live, you forget to un-check that little box! Doh!
Discourage Search Engines Notifier is a simple little plugin that makes it easy to know when your WordPress site is blocking search engines.
