Noindex Meta

  • Hi

    I got the result of ‘Your page contains noindex meta or header’. Fix it by ‘Remove the noindex robots meta tag. Only ever use it on pages you want to keep out of the search engines’.

    I have few pages, 120 post, 120 portfolio. I try to search noindex. There are too many pages.
    From the SEO-Site-Analysis, I got the above result BUT there is no further information or page contains noindex meta or header.

    Is there any suggestion to get the noindex page? or how to fix issue?

    Thank you

    Hi Michael Davis,

    With refer to the SEO Analysis, I have the following questions want to have your suggestions:-

    Performance / Is there ANY plugin to help or find out or locate the issue?
    1) Minify CSS & Javascript: ‘Some CSS or Javascript files don’t seem to be minified.’
    I try to fix these issue. Some of these issue are coming from the third party plugin. These third party plugin have css or js that cannot minify. Do you have suggestions to minify the issue.

    2) Page Objects: ‘Your page makes 170 requests. More than 20 requests can result in slow page loading.’
    ‘Try to replace embedded objects with HTML5 alternatives’. Where I can find the embedded objects to have problems.

    3) Page Size: ‘The size of the HTML document is 418 Kb, over the average of 33 Kb and our recommendation of 50 Kb.’
    I have ONE landing page (Home page). This one page is the page I put in all major data, one slide plugin, one movie, and many images. Are those will have the large size of document?

    I will try to ‘remove any unnecessary tags from your markup.’

    Sometimes inline CSS is generated by the third party plugin. How to do it?

    ‘Removing white space’. I will look for the white page in TEXT format in the ‘Home’ page

    Advanced SEO / Is there ANY plugin to help or find out or locate the issue?
    Noindex Meta: Your page contains noindex meta or header.
    I try few WordPress Plugin to locate the noindex meta or header. There is no such noindexes.
    Do you have suggestion to locate the issue?

    Basic SEO / All images on your page have NO alt attributes
    I found out there are TWO third party plugin don’t have the alt attributes. I cannot place the image alt into the plugin.
    If I disable two plugin. I will get higher result.

    I try many plugin from WordPress to fix the warning or error but unsuccessful. Some of the above problems are third party issue. Do you have some idea to fix the issue?

    The temp login is last for one week.

    Many Thanks


    Hi Dominic,

    Thanks for the access.

    1). The noindex error is resulting from the fact that you have set your site to noindex via Settings > Reading as shown below:
    I have unchecked this option for you.

    2). You need to make use of caching plugin to achieve this, if the current one if not minifying all the CSS and JS on your site then you will need to get a different plugin to do this. I can suggest that you try the following plugin

    3). This is resulting from the slider plugin that you are using. I would suggest that you get in touch with the author of this plugin so that they can help in this optimization. You may want to reduce the different types of media on the page.

    4). I can suggest that you install an image compression plugin to help in reducing the sizes of images that you are using on your pages.

    5). You can optimize your images and manually add natural descriptions containing your focus keywords to the images that are listed on this section.
    If the third party plugins reporting the errors are not essential then I can suggest that you deactivate them but you can easily identify the images that contain the errors on your media library and add the tags.

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    Hi Micheal,
