On GSC I have a warning on this page:
The message is that the file is indexed though blocked by robots.txt.
Weirdly I do not have a robots.txt file in the root directory, and have not altered any robots.txt entries.
I wondered if another error (I can’t remember where I found this – I saved the info in a text file) might be related to this:
WWW Canonicalization Does your site appear on more than one URL?
How to fix
The www and non-www versions of your URL are not redirected to the same site.
Decide whether you want your site’s URLs to include a “www”, or if you prefer a plain domain name. There are marketing pros and cons for each choice, but neither one is better or worse for SEO purposes – as long as you’re consistent.
You should use HTTP redirections (301 permanant redirects) to pass PageRank from the “wrong” URLs to the standard (canonical) ones. That way, your content will still benefit from backlinks if someone makes a mistake and uses the wrong URL.
I believe it is possible to set up a redirect in RankMath? If that’s right, please could you explain how to point http://www.reclaimdesign.org to reclaimdesign.org?
Many thanks for your help.
