Meta Robots is showing noindex

  • I have an important product page that links to each of my products (7).
    The Advance tab of the RM SEO section on the page is only showing the “index” option as checked.
    AHREFS report is showing that the Meta Robots.txt file for the page is showing the following:
    noarchive
    nofollow
    noimageindex
    noindex
    nosnippet

    How can I resolve this?
    Also, I Have read all of the current post on Sitemaps and the troubleshooting guide. I still dont see a sitemap in the root directory of my site after performing the recommended steps?

  • Hello,

    You can see your sitemap here:
    https://www.luxcharters.co.uk/sitemap_index.xml

    You can validate your sitemap here:

    Also, It is a pretty common mistake to open the page source and search for a noindex tag to see if the page is marked as noindex or not. In your case, you saw the mention of noindex and assumed that the page is set as noindex. The actual noindex tag is added like this:

    <meta robots="noindex">

    But, the one you mentioned in your post refers to the No Index option that Rank Math offers in the admin menu bar.
    null

    It is pretty easy to mistake the two especially if you do not have full knowledge of how the noindex tag works and how it is supposed to look like.

    You can confirm the presence (or absence) of the actual robots noindex tag on this 3rd party website:

    So, nothing to worry about if the above website says it is index. Your page is definitely not set to noindex 🙂

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
