How can I make a page on my site no follow in wordpress?

I would like to put a few pages on my site that I don't want to waste link juice on, but I don't know how to make them no follow in wordpress. I don't want the SE's to crawl them at all. Can this be done or should not include these pages at all?

You could use the Platinum SEO pack plugin to set your meta tags to no index/no follow. Just select index or no index as well as follow/ no follow on your posts by clicking on the checkbox.

If you don't want to have those pages crawled, then you need the robot.txt files. The noindex will prevent the indexing and the nofollow prevents the juice, but the page would still be read.

I'm not a wordpress expert so I dunnot what you need to include a robot.txt file with it... maybe you can just edit the existing file and "fix it".

Add something like:

Disable: path-to-page
