Heeft deze plugin invloed op SEO?

No, it does not affect crawling and indexing by search engines.
The ONLY thing it does is hiding selected post/pages from your site search page. Not altering SEO indexing.

If you want posts/pages to be hidden from search engines you may add the following snippet to your functions.php:

function add_meta_for_search_excluded()
    global $post;
    if (false !== array_search($post->ID, get_option('sep_exclude', array()))) {
        echo '<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow" />', "\n";
add_action('wp_head', 'add_meta_for_search_excluded');

Note: already indexed pages will remain indexed for quite a while. In order to remove them from Google index, you may use Google Search Console (or similar tool for other engines).

Zijn er hooks of acties beschikbaar om het gedrag van de plugin aan te passen?

There is an action searchexclude_hide_from_search.
You can pass any post/page/custom_post ids as an array in the first parameter.
The second parameter specifies state of visibility in search. Pass true if you want to hide posts/pages,
or false – if you want show them in the search results.

Let’s say you want “Exclude from Search Results” checkbox to be checked off by default
for newly created posts, but not pages. In this case you can add following code
to your theme’s function.php:

add_filter('default_content', 'exclude_new_post_by_default', 10, 2);
function exclude_new_post_by_default($content, $post)
    if ('post' === $post->post_type) {
        do_action('searchexclude_hide_from_search', array($post->ID), true);

Also there is a filter searchexclude_filter_search.
With this filter you can turn on/off search filtering dynamically.
$exclude – current search filtering state (specifies whether to filter search or not)
$query – current WP_Query object

By returning true or false you can turn search filtering respectively.

Let’s say you need to disable search filtering if searching by specific post_type.
In this case you could add following code to you functions.php:

add_filter('searchexclude_filter_search', 'filterForProducts', 10, 2);
function filterForProducts($exclude, $query)
    return $exclude && 'product' !== $query->get('post_type');

I use an ad blocker so I haven’t been troubled by adware. Your plugin appears to work well and I appreciate the option is located in the Quick Edit. However, the option does not show in Quick Edit when selecting multiple pages.

We have begun removing this plugin from hundreds of client websites as it adds a great deal of unnecessary bloat and advertisements in the backend. Too bad! However, we found another plugin, Hide from Search, which we heavily tested, is actively updated and has an added feature. Sorry to see good things go so bad… glad to see that there are almost always alternatives in the WordPress way!

Was a simple good plugin, but now adds commercials for Quadlayers to my dashboard. Unprofessional. Avoid!

Used to be a great plugin. Not anymore. Acquired by April 2023 by a company called QuadLayers, which bloated the plugin on its first update after changing hands. Why can’t we have nice things?

This used to be a great, lightweight, useful plugin. Then, it was bought out by some software company that started filling it with bloat and adware. You’re much better off finding some other solution, or forking the plugin as it was before QuadLayers got involved.
