Exclude from search: more flexible (no index, follow, etc.)
I can exlude a page from being indexed by search engines by selecting 'Exclude from search'. I actually sends 'two signals' to seatch engine: do not index and do not follow links on this page as well.
I would like to see that the two are seperately selectable:
- No index
- No follow
Please share your thoughts and support the idea if you’re interested.

Agree these would be useful. Perhaps with more user-friendly terms like:
- Exclude from site search
- Hide from search engines
- Block page links from search engines
Or something to that effect.

There should be two checkboxes in page properties. One is named 'no index' and other is named 'no follow'. The default value of each checkbox is should be false.
