I want to hide certain products from the store and from the search results. Previously it worked by using seo.hidden metafield and setting its integer value to 1 on the product, but now it is not working anymore. Any idea?

Can you share the ? values for a SEO hidden product metafield on your site:


"namespace": "?",
"key": "?",
"value": ?,
"type": "?"


You can see these raw values when logged into that stores Admin.

Hey, @Nitansh 

The above method will hide the product from search engines but not the storefront. You can unpublish the products from your Shopify admin so that they no longer show up on your storefront. We have a guide here on how you can accomplish that. 


If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
