Magento: Product is still visible in catalog and search even after changing visibility to nowhere

Scenario:

I have changed my product’s Visibility to ‘Nowhere‘. But still the product is visible in both catalog and search. I have refreshed cache but the problem is still there.

Cause:

This problem arises because the Scope of Visibility attribute is Store View by default. This means that it’s value is set differently for each store.

Solution:

There are two solutions:-

1) Either, change the Visibility of the product to Nowhere for each store you have.

– While editing product, in the top left corner, you will see ‘Choose Store View’
– Choose the store where you want the product visibility to Nowhere
– Now, edit the visibility to Nowhere and Save the product

2) The second solution is to directly change the Visibility attribute Scope.

– Go to Catalog -> Attributes -> Manage Attributes
– Edit Visibility attribute
– Change the Scope to ‘Global’

I prefer the first solution. But, it might depend upon your need and ease.

Hope it helps. Thanks.
