Search engines index all content that's uploaded publicly to SlideShare. To prevent that from happening, you can upload your content privately.

To upload content privately

  1. Sign in to SlideShare.
  2. Click the Upload button on the upper right.
  3. Click the Select files to upload button, drag your files onto the page, or upload files from the cloud.
  4. Select the files you wish to upload.
  5. Add Title, Description, Category, and Tags.
  6. Set Privacy Option to Private.
  7. Click Publish.

Making public content private

  2. Move your cursor over your photo on the upper right and select My Uploads.
  3. Click on the presentation you’d like to make private.
  4. Click Privacy Settings below the presentation.
  5. Click Private.
  6. Click Update.

An alternative method to making public content private is to:

  1. Move your cursor over your photo in the upper right corner and select My Uploads.
  2. Find the content you'd like to make private, and then click the open padlock at the top of the content.

Note: Usernames and profiles will be indexed even for privately uploaded SlideShare contents.
