No index Google Search Console

  • Hi Support team Rank Math,

    I am facing some differences between Rank Math and Google Search Console and hope you can clear up some things for me.

    For all my url’s indexing is not allowed, it says: “No: ‘noindex’ detected in ‘robots’ meta tag”
    But in Rank Math my pages are marked as Robot Meta: Index

    I can’t attach some screenshots, otherwise I did.

    Can you please assist me with this.

    Best regards,

    Joery

  • Hello,

    Thanks for getting in touch and I am extremely sorry about the trouble this might have caused.

    Could you please do the following:

    1. Make sure the post is not selected as ‘noindex’ in WP > Posts > Your Post > Advanced Tab in Rank Math.
    Screenshot:

    Individual Post Advanced Tab

    2. Ensure that the noindex is not selected for Global or Posts meta:

    Noindex Settings

    3. Make sure you have not added any data to keep Google from indexing your site in Rank math > General settings > Robots.txt

    4. Head over to WordPress dashboard > Settings > Reading and uncheck the option to discourage Search engines from indexing the site.

    You can also share with us your URL so we can check from our end.

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for your reply.

    The checkbox ‘Discourage search engines from indexing this site’ was enabled, so I unchecked that one.

    But still, some of my pages are marked as noindex. For example https://www.hessenkar.nl/arrangementen/theatraal-dineren/.

    Hope you have another solution.

    Best regards,

    Joery

    Hello,

    I have checked your URL and it seems to be set to index just fine. Please clear your cache or check in a private browser.

    Hi Michael,

    Yes, I checked that one as well.

    But now, I receive a mail from Google Search Console with the following:

    Coverage issues detected on hessenkar.nl

    To the owner of hessenkar.nl:

    Search Console has identified that your site is affected by 1 Coverage issues:

    We recommend that you fix these issues when possible to enable the best experience and coverage in Google Search.

    This url is in this list: https://www.hessenkar.nl/arrangementen/theatraal-dineren/

    Is there something else wrong in my Rank Math settings?

    Hello,

    Your meta robots and even your robots.txt file are fine, they are setting that page as index so it doesn’t seem like an issue on Rank Math nor your site.

    Just be sure to validate the issue again and also to wait a few days. If after that you still have the issue, let us know and we will have to look deeper.

    Looking forward to help you.
