Manually submit a webpage to sitemap

  • Hi, I have a conversational form by Wpforms that, by default, gets its own page, rather than being embedded within another. The problem is, Google Search Console says it’s marked as noindex. I’ve tried to edit the robots.txt to “Allow: /(url-in-question)” but the issue persists.
    I wonder if including the page in the pages_sitemap.xml would help, but I cannot find a way to do that, and it doesn’t automatically recognize this as a page

  • Hello,

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

    It is not the solution since if it is included in the sitemap but it is set as no-index, it won’t be indexed.

    I checked the URL and it seems Rank Math adds the index tag but after that, another plugin (maybe Wpforms) adds the no-index tag, so it overrides it.

    You can check it by yourself reading the page’s source code and looking for “robots”. You will see first the one added by Rank Math and after that, the other one.

    So you should try to find which plugin is adding that new robots tag and configure it to don’t add it.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi. Thanks for the help. You helped me locate the meta tag, and then I got to wondering how I could change that.

    I found a solution and want to share for anyone else encountering this issue.
