This extension improves the SEO features of EXT:news by providing the following fields:

  • Index this article: index vs. noindex
  • Follow this article: follow vs. nofollow
  • Image Preview Size: Options standard, large, none

Even if no individual robot instructions are necessary, this extension solves the problem to set the detail page to noindex to avoid being listed in the sitemap but now having a index instruction when rendering an article record.
