Indexing and redirection problem

  • I have been having problems with regards to indexing my site. Whenever I check with Google Search Console, it says that indexing is blocked by the robots.txt file. This is also true for Yandex and Bing. I am not quite sure how to resolve this.

    There have also been problems with redirections on the homepage.

  • Hello,

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

    I am afraid that I could not access your site, it is reporting a “Too many redirects” error. Do you have some country specific restrictions for your domain?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    I do not have any country-specific restrictions that I place for my domain. So I am not quite sure what’s causing it.

    Hello,

    Can you please disable the Redirections module in the Rank Math plugin, if enabled and see if that helps?

    Here’s what we are getting when viewing in an incognito window:
    too many redirections

    Also, we might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:

    Temporary Login Without Password

    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):

    We really look forward to helping you.

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Updated the link and I don’t think I have the redirection module on.

    Hello,

    Please check the screenshot in the Sensitive Area when we tried to log in.

    Can you please contact the plugin developers and get it fixed?

    Thank you.

    I have disabled the plugin for the moment. Can you try to see if it is working right now?

    Hello,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    I have now been able to login to your site.
    There is a static robots.txt file on the root of your site that could be causing this issue.
    Please login to your site via FTP and delete the static file since Rank Math creates a dynamic robots.txt file to manage your robots meta data.

    This should then fix this issue. Thank you.

    When I try to index the site via Search Console, I am still getting errors.

    Hello,

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

    Could you please disable the Rank Math sitemap module and install the following plugin for your sitemaps: https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/ and check if the results will be the same?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Seems to be working now. Thanks.
