Settings -> Privacy "block search engines" option is not accurate

There is an option on the Settings -> Privacy page says it will "block search engines", but that does not always happen because checking the option does not block posts already established in the search engine. Proposing updating the language so it's more accurate.
"I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors"
"I would like to ask search engines not to index this site, but allow normal visitors"
