With SharePoint 2013, is it possible to create a second Pages library within the same site collection? Reason being is that I would like to set private user-permissions on this second library so that you can only see the pages if you are logged in "and" for the purpose of Google not crawling these pages to leave on search engine results. These are basically private pages.

If this is possible, what steps are needed to create a 2nd pages library OOTB? I'm using Publishing Pages.

Heya! Not sure if you can even do that. At least for SP 2010 I think it's a "real" limitation to have only one pages library per publishing site. You could maybe try and use the wiki library and create wiki pages in it? :) – Tenttu Aug 19 '14 at 12:05

What about creating a subsite under that Site Collection ? Subsites have their own Page library, and then exclude the whole Subsite or the Pages library from being crawled?

That would be my kind of OOTB "work-around".

Will do! I'll just make sure to move my specific pages to the private sub site when the right time comes. thank you very much. – blachawk Aug 19 '14 at 21:15
