How do search engines work with my flipbooks?

Product: FlippingBook Online

Your FlippingBook Online flipbooks are not indexed by search engines by default. However, you can make your flipbook searchable on Google and other search engines.

To make your flipbook indexed by search engines, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the list of your flipbooks.
  2. Hover over the flipbook you'd like to change and choose the Customize option from the three-dot button menu.

  3. Find the Settings section and click on it to expand it.
  4. Enable the option Searchable on Google:

Don't forget to click Finish before leaving the Customize menu!

Note! If you disable the Searchable on Google feature for a flipbook that has already been indexed, it will not remove the data from the search engines' cache straightaway. It might take up to 6 weeks for Google to reindex the pages, but in the end, any information you don't want to be openly present on the web will disappear.

As an alternative, you can always consider the option of deleting an already indexed flipbook and import it again with the Searchable on Google feature disabled in the first place. The main disadvantage is that it will break all the links already shared with the people, but it’s still a viable solution. Especially if you accidentally forgot to disable SEO for the flipbook with a piece of highly sensitive information.

And if you find yourself in a difficult situation, where you don’t know what to do, you can always contact us via the special form or simply write an email to​
