  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Could you please share a copy of the links affected by the first issue?
    The second and third issues are completely normal and will be eventually indexed as long as they have not been set to noindex. Please share a copy of these too on the sensitive data section so that we can advise further.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hello,

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Hi Holger,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    The affected posts are redirecting to the non-www version of the category page while the canonical points to the www. version of the page.
    Could you please take a look at the following page for some tips on how to address this with some redirections:

    I have added my email address on the sensitive data section so that you can make a property owner on your GSC.

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the access.

    According to search console, the first problem is happening because Google thinks that the non www. version of your site URL is a better candidate for canonical and this not indexing the URLs because it thinks there are duplicates.
    I have resubmited a few URLs so that Google can detect the changes that you made.

    I have also removed the below code from your .htaccess file that was causing infinite loops on some pages:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]

    I have also added the following redirect for your old URLs that were reporting redirection errors to the new URLs after you changed the permalink structure.

    Source URLs: /([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{2})/(.+)
    Type: Regex
    Destination URL: http://yourdomain.com/$3

    These changes have been submitted for validation.

    Let us know how this goes. Thank you.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for getting back to us.

    The plugin is not in control of your rankings, fluctuations are completely normal.
    I have checked the search console but validation on the affected pages is still going on.

    I can suggest that you check back after a short while. Thank you.
