I’m trying to find proper information about huffington post no index no follow issues. I sent an article to the Huffington Post 2 weeks before and it was accepted: The UN Sustainable Development Goals: 5 Tips for Engaging Youth on Digital Platforms. My post appears to be on the Huffington Post site but instead of being on their blog it is on their “Contributors” platform. Contribution to Huffington Post become practically useless, as the only way people can know about your post is through you. The whole concept of publishing work on huff post is get your opinion heard by others. By not indexing article in search engine ,Huff post not helping the writers. Question is when articles will be indexed in search engine.?

Please check the source code of this post and let me know why news is not indexing in google: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/the-un-sustainable-development-goals-5-tips-for-engaging_us_57fcea40e4b090dec0e71cdb

Huffington Post controls this on their development side.  This is expected functionality of their Contributor's section to have things no index, no follow automatically and not be indexed in search engines like Google, Bing, etc.

However, there may be a chance of getting indexed and visible to the public if you get this article shared by people of Huffington Post.

It’s a new contributor platform where anybody can post. It is available for everyone. And yes, now your blogs will get published instantly. No manual review.

But here is the catch. Your posts would be “No Index” and “No Follow”.

What it means that your posts will not be indexed in search engines such as Google and Bing. And since your posts will be “No Index”, there would be no search engine visibility and no search engine visibility means no one can find your blog through search engines.

The only way to get your blog indexed and visible to public is writing a viral piece of content. The more your content is shared by people on Huffington Post, more your chances of getting indexed and visible to public.

Huffington post don’t take any responsibility of content published by you. It’s a kind of stand alone platform.
