Prohibit access to low-quality content
Even if you apply the noindex tag on your pages with thin content, Google will still crawl them. This will cause bots to waste time on useless pages.
To solve this, it is best to use a robots.txt file where you place those thin content URLs. This way, Google bots will not waste time and you will optimize your crawl budget to the most.
Recommendation: Unindex thin content URLs before blocking them by robots. If you do it the other way around, Google will never be able to access the URLs to deindex them.
