Plugins such as Yoast SEO will automatically index all content. This means that the content will automatically appear in the search engine results. You can choose which types of content should and shouldn't be indexed if you wish.

Hover over it and look for the "Search Appearance" option of Yoast:

No-index Thrive Symbols
Then, on the Yoast "Search Appearance" page, click on the "Content Types" tab:
Scroll down to find the "Thrive Symbols" section and click on it, to expand it:
In order to no-index your Thrive Symbols, click on "Off" under the "Show Thrive Symbols in search results" option:
Make sure you save the changes:
No-index Thrive Lightboxes
The same goes for Thrive Lightboxes - if you do not wish for them to appear in the search engine results, make sure you select "Off" here:
Save everything and you're all done!
