My main page has been removed from google because of a noindex issue

  • I updated rankmath plugin on the 10th January to the newest version. Today 13th January i received notification that i have lost all my rankings for my main keywords.

    I checked google webmaster tools and can confirm my most visited page has been set to no index? I have followed all the support provided on the forum.

    Google webmaster error > No: ‘noindex’ detected in ‘robots’ meta tag

    settings > reading > Search engine visibility (not checked)
    Rankmath > sitemaps settings > set to index post & pages

    Your speedy help is appreciated as it stands my income has stalled.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and bringing your concern to our attention. I’m sorry for the delay and for any inconvenience this issue may have caused you.

    I’ve checked the page you have provided, and it seems that the index tag is already set. But I noticed that the Site Kit by Google adds the noindex meta, which results in your site not being indexed. Please refer to my screenshot in the designated Sensitive Data section.

    It seems that it detects that page as a login page, which should not be indexed by default. But since you mentioned this should be your most visited page, you may need to disable the noindex generated by that plugin.

    I hope that helps. Thank you, and looking forward to your update.

    I have removed Site Kit by Google and cleared the cache and the noindex meta tag is still there, i had google site kit on the website for 2 years never had this issue. This only happened the other day when i updated Rankmath


    I can no longer replicate the issue with noindex tag on your specified page, please check the screencast I have added in the sensitive section.

    Looking forward to helping you
