For some of our projects, we are collaborating with third parties from outside the organization, and it would be nice to share a public link to a StoryMap which is otherwise unlisted (i.e. not indexed by search engines, the equivalent of a robots `noindex` meta statement or something similar).

Hi Rudo -- Unfortunately this is not currently a capability of the ArcGIS platform, so we do not have a way to implement this in StoryMaps.

I would suggest that you vote for one or both of these ideas to register your support for this feature:

Privacy Setting, ArcGIS Online: unsearchable but publically viewable if embeddable
