Hide "New Issue" pages from search engine bots

Issue #14325 closed
Ronald Chia staff created an issue

For example, the first Google search hit for "launchbox bitbucket" is the submit new issues page of the repository.

This would cause users to many submit reports without checking existing open issue first. Hence, it's best that the issue page is indexed instead of the "new issue creation" page.

    This is an interesting one, because if we purposefully don't index this it could harm the experience for customers who want this page to be indexed.

    As a workaround, I'd encourage customers with this issue to use the "new issue message" feature (found in Issue tracker settings) to inform their users to review open issues first.
