My Forum is Private. How to Hide from Search Engines?

Hello,

The forum I help administer is a private, members-only installation. Nothing should be visible to persons not logged in, and so far that's all working perfectly.

I cannot find any settings to disable search engine robots from crawling our members-only content. I'm not seeing that content when I google the names of forum threads, but I'm not sure that means it's not being indexed somehow anyway.

Question: how can I disable search engine indexing for everything except the login page?

If your board isn’t accessible to guests, it won’t be indexed. 

You don’t need to do anything.
