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

  • Hello,

    Google couldn’t index two of my products and the shop page. Google reports they are tag as ‘noindex’. I reviewed the Advanced Rank Math SEO for these two products and the shop page and ‘Index’ is marked on the Robots Meta tab for all of them. Also, the Schema Type of both products and the shop page are ‘Product’.
    The settings of Rank Math SEO Woocommece are as follow:
    Remove base: off
    Remove category base: off
    Remove parent slugs: off
    Remove generator tag: on
    Remove schema markup on shop archives: on
    Brand: None

    Thank you

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Could you share the affected URLs in the Sensitive Data section so we can check them?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.



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

    Thank you.

    Hello Alberto,

    I deactivate Rank Math, purged all caches, and activated Rank Math again. Google has not passed yet again for my website, but it looks like the pages are ok now.
    Using Google Developer I reviewed the <head> section and the meta tag shows <meta name=”robots” content=”follow, index, max-snippet:-1, max-video-preview:-1, max-image-preview:large”> in all of them and the main site. I couldn’t fine x-robots-tags.
    I would appreciate it if you review them as well. It could be another issue that stops the Google indexing process.
    Thank you

    We cannot see a noindex tag in any of those URLs.

    It is likely a previous issue and it doesn’t exist any longer. Please check the last crawl date on the error in your Google Search Console and it should be from an older date.

    You can use this 3rd party tool to verify that there is no noindex tag presently on your website:

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
