My site has not been indexed.

  • Hi.
    I am new to WordPress and rank math.
    I recently moved my site to wordpress with the same URL.

    I have submitted my url and sitemaps but in google search console, I get the following message.

    Submitted URL marked ‘noindex’

    Also <meta name=’robots’ content=’noindex,nofollow’ /> in my top page source code.

    It says my site has been crawled but indexing was not allowed.

    Last crawl
    Nov 8, 2020, 8:53:51 AM
    Crawled as Googlebot smartphone
    Crawl allowed? Yes
    Page fetch Successful
    Indexing allowed? No: ‘noindex’ detected in ‘robots’ meta tag

    Hi, I got the exact same thing. And you haven’t heard back from Rankmath yet?

    Hey, perhaps you can try this;

    There is an index-setting under WordPress: Settings -> Reading (Settings) -> uncheck at “search engine visibility”.
    Mine was checked, but only noticed AFTER I switched to Yoast. So, not sure this was the noindex error under RankMath.

    Good luck!

    Thank you very much for taking your time to help me solve the problem, renewasabi.

    What you suggested was exactly the solution I found, too!
    Rank Math did not get back to me for such a long time and I kept searching and I found it just a few days earlier.

    I remember going through the page before but I don’t remember checking the box “Discourage search engines from indexing this site” but it was checked. It might have been the default setting but it should not be.

    Thanks again for your time and help!

    I could not remember either checking that box. But glad you got it sorted!
