Tracking categories

Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists tracking categories which are automatically populated by the MediaWiki software. Their names can be changed by altering the relevant system messages in the MediaWiki namespace.

Tracking category Message name Category inclusion criteria

The page has a __INDEX__ on it (and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed), and hence is indexed by robots where it normally wouldn't be.

Noindexed pagesnoindex-category

The page is not indexed by robots because it has the magic word __NOINDEX__ on it and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed.
