You can easily integrate SearchWP with this setting by adding the following to your theme’s functions.php:

function my_searchwp_seo_framework_integration( $ids ) {
$post_ids = get_posts( array(
'post_type' => 'any',
'fields' => 'ids',
'nopaing' => true,
'meta_query' => array(
'key' => 'exclude_local_search',
'type' => 'BINARY',
'value' => true,
) );
if ( ! empty( $post_ids ) ) {
$ids = array_values(
array_merge( (array) $ids, $post_ids )
return $ids;
add_filter( 'searchwp_prevent_indexing', 'my_searchwp_seo_framework_integration' );
add_filter( 'searchwp_exclude', 'my_searchwp_seo_framework_integration' );
