This is huge for many businesses. There's a potential for the feature suggestions to outrank the actual landing pages you want people to find when they're searching for your product in Google. Also, you may not want this site showing up in Google if a potential customer or competitor searches for "alternatives to [product name]" or "common issues with [business]" or "my complaint with [business] is..." These emit negative buying signals sometimes that are really hard to quantify and overcome.
A /robots.txt file disallowing everything would be great! We had to make our product private just so we didn't get indexed by Google.
We've added an option to your Feature Upvote dashboard, that lets you disable Google indexing.Full info is here:https://featureupvote.com/docs/disable-google-from-indexing-your-suggestion-board/
