Google indexing custom post type terms

  • Resolved Mansoor Jadoon

    Hello, Google is indexing some of the categories and tags for custom post types while those are not included in the sitemap. Where do I control what gets indexed and what post types and terms have a no-index tag?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and bringing your concern to our attention. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this issue may have caused you.

    Could you please share some of the URLs that are indexed on the search results page even though they are set to noindex? You can add them to the sensitive data section

    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure, and only our support staff has access to that section.

    Meanwhile, if those pages are already set to noindex in Rank Math, you can control them by submitting your sitemap in your Google Search Console account.

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Thank you.

    Hello, I am not entirely sure if those links have a no-index tag or not.
    It’s just that I have excluded them from the sitemap.
    Does that mean a no-index tag is automatically added to them? Or is there are a setting in Rank math where I can add a no-index tag to specific pages and post types?

    Is there a way you can login to my site and have a look to the problem , Im using to embed videoes in my site


    @Porn I’ve already replied to your other ticket. If you have further questions, please continue there to assist you accordingly.

    @Mansoor Excluding them from your sitemap is not enough for removing them on the search results page. You may need to set them to noindex in this case. You can set the default robots meta tags on those post types in Rank Math > Titles & Meta > Post type > Enable the Robots Meta option and select the No Index checkbox

    Post meta robots

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you.

    Thank you
