  • Hello,

    The FTP is working now, but now I couldn’t login to your site’s wp-admin. After entering the username/password the site is redirecting me to the /my-account__trashed/ page.

    It looks like you have deleted the account?

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Dear Pratik,
    Sorg, I made some changes to my site, That why. Can you please try now.

    Did you find something when you were in FTP?

    Were you able to fix the issue or did you change anything that could have fixed this?

    Earlier you Sitemap was showing some blank entries now I don’t see any invalid URLs.

    Can you please confirm?

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Hi Pratik,
    I apologize for the late reply. It was a lot of work. Has deleted many pages to find them blank fields. Now I have re-created all those deleted files and now it looks good. That may be why. I do not know what I have done.
    Can you please check if I have the right setting so that I do not have problems in the future.
    Can you please also check if I have the right settings to get good results in google search. That I did not miss anything. Please.

    Hello,

    I wanted to take a look at your Settings but I couldn’t login with the username/password you added in the Sensitive Data Section. Can you please check and add the correct access details?

    Looking forward to helping you.

    Hi,
    Can you Please try now.

    Hello,

    I checked your site and added the following Rule in your cache plugin settings> Advanced Rules > Never Cache URLs : /(.*)sitemap(.*) which will prevent your sitemap URLs from being cached. You however seem to have a robots.txt file in your root folder which doesn’t include Rank math defaults. To allow Rank math to generate this automatically please remove or rename the robots.txt in your root folder.

    Other than that, your sitemap settings seem to be perfectly fine.

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.

    Hello,
    Yes thanks,
    Can you please help me remove it? Will there be a problem with the website if you remove or rename it?

    //Yonatan

    Hello,

    We have removed it for you.

    This is what it contained:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    

    The robots.txt included with Rank Math is working fine now.

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

    Thanks,
    How can I prevent a cart, my account page, and checkout from being crawled by Google?

    // Yonatan

    Hello,

    Those pages are by default set to noindex by woocommerce. If you are not using WooCommerece, you can set the noindex tag in Rank math metabox under the advanced tab.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    ​​​​​​

    Hello,

    You have set your attachments to noindex and the attachment sitemap therefore leads to 404 page not found. To fix this please head over to Rank math > Titles & Meta > Attachments and set them to index then check if your attachment sitemap is updated with the URLs. If it’s working fine, you can then resubmit on the GSC again.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
