How do I make my publication non-searchable through various search engines?

You can exclude any folder on your webserver from being searchable by creating a robots.txt file and uploading it so that it sits at the root of the site such as http://www.your-domain.com/robots.txt

The robots.txt file should have the following lines contained in it:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /your-project-folder/

You would replace “your-project-folder” with the actual name of the project folder. The robots.txt file is universal through Google, Bing, Yahoo and almost all other search engines so those two lines of text should prevent the publication from being indexed by a search engine.
