I have a website, I want to hide a div content in a web page from search engines, But I am unable to do this. Please suggest me to hide div content only from search engines and make visible to users.
I think the options are to remove the content from the page altogether, or block the entire page with a robots meta tag.
Another way, which I would not condone, would be to display the content as an image, this would of course be an accessibility fail and probably no0t work well responsively, not a good idea.
To be honest, this all sounds a bit shady. If you are wanting to so such things for SEO purposes, you have to be doing something very wrong.
This is something you want to not do.
Cloaking refers to the practice of presenting different content or URLs to human users and search engines. Cloaking is considered a violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines because it provides our users with different results than they expected
Actually, I have parent website and more than 10 its child website for different products. But the main thing is that all websites are having same terms and condition, privacy and policy and more this type of things. Now, I hope you clear about this.
Could you tell me, I have a parent website and more than 10 its child website with having same, terms and condition, privacy and policy, refund policy and more as these, then how to manage these all???
This is a different topic?
If all have the same, isn’t pretty much a do once and update only rarely?
You can block the entire page from being indexed by adding
<meta name="robots" content="noindex"> or
<meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow"> in the head.
See http://www.robotstxt.org/meta.html and https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93710?hl=en for more information.
Is this a concern about being penalised for duplicate content?
You should not worry too much about that if that content is only things like Ts & Cs, Etc. That is not likely the content that people are actively searching for with keywords.
Duplicate content within a site will generally just mean that just one result is returned for searches matching that content with the others ignored. But the unique parts of those pages should still show for relevant searches for that content.
However, if the exact same policies relate so many pages, it may be better to have just one page for that and have each product page link to it.

suppose, I have a website (online pharmacy) and made 10 websites with different medicine with having T&C, P&P same, then…
Please read my question very clearly, I want to hide only part of content of my entire page.
Sorry - I was assuming when you said [quote=“a1webservice, post:5, topic:257809”]
terms and condition, privacy and policy, refund policy
that you simply linked from each page to these pages, which is, in my experience, the more usual method. That would certainly be an easy way around your problem.
If i do this Google will penanlize my website???
If you do what?
Thanks, I will consider your point and will see
There is no penalty. What there is, is no guarantee of which duplicate content will appear where in the search results.
For example, Discourse forums have a FAQ page.
If you search for the first paragraph there are many results
I hope so…
