My Home Page is not getting indexed.

  • I recently purchased a domain on 18th May 2020. My website till now has a total of 6 pages. Out of the 6, 5 have been successfully crawled. The only page remaining to be crawled is my home page.
    I get the following error in Search Console:

    No: ‘noindex’ detected in ‘robots’ meta tag

    Any idea why is this happening?
    PS: I recently had discouraged search engine visibility since my website was under construction. Now I have unchecked discourage search engine but still my homepage is the only page not indexed. Help!

  • Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Please check the page source of the URLs in questions. Check if there is a “noindex” robots tag in there.

    Then, determine if it is a post, a page, a category, or a tag archive.

    Once you determine what type of URLs are set to index, check their settings at WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Titles & Meta.

    Check each tab and ensure the settings are what you want them to be.

    Do note that sometimes it is good to have certain links set as noindex. This is true, especially for the “Misc. Pages”, “Authors”, and “Tags”. Ideally, you don’t want them to be indexable because that might create duplicate content issues and dilute down your website’s authority.

    If the pages set as noindex are amongst the pages I mentioned above; you can ignore them or make them indexable using the provided options.

    If you see noindex only on individual pages or posts, you can check the Advanced Tab of that post/page and select the “Index” option:
