No Index Errors

  • On my website http://www.autotraderimports.com I have recieved numerous error messages from google saying that my page has noindex issues such as Submitted URL marked ‘noindex’

    I have checked my files in cpanel and there is no additional TXT file. I checked the robots TXT file in rankmath and that has nothing which should relate to this.

    I have checked my source code and sure enough, there is two noindex from rankmath source. ‘wp-admin-bar-rank-math-no-index’ class=”mark-page-as”>As NoIndex<li id=’wp-admin-bar-rank-math-no-follow’

    I check the “mark this page” link and it clicked as pillar content. This has been going on for some time now. Please help quickly as I am being punished by the google gods

    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.

    Thank You so much for the great support Alberto.

    Hello,

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    You don’t have to worry, you see it in red because it is featuring it:
    follow, index, max-snippet:-1, max-video-preview:-1, max-image-preview:large

    The “follow” means Google will follow links inside it.
    “Index” means Google can index it.
    “max-video-preview” and max-image-preview” are just advanced settings to tell Google some details about how to display thumbnails (if any) in image results.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Thanks again for the support Alberto
