Please see  http://prntscr.com/etfew3. Members and subscription profiles are indexed by Google. How to keep these links private and not indexed?

It's designed to allow Google to index. User profiles of all forum platforms are always available for index. I'm sorry but there is no way to restrict this with current wpForo version. We'll add this in our to-do list.

Hi I have the same problem and I want the profile of index users to be wasted in Google because of my resources. You said 5 years ago to put it on your to-do list. Have you worked for this topic?

@amir_bani,

This is already added. All user profile links will be changed to nofollow once the "Enable User Profile Page indexing" option is set "No". The option is located in the Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features Tab.

I did this, but why index in a webmaster?

On my forum I enable a restriction for guests to view forum profile, so search crawlers see profile links but cann't to index them. Hope this helps.
