  • Hello,

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

    Your robots.txt file is managed by Rank Math and currently it does not have any definitions that would be blocking Google. I have also checked your homepage and several of your other pages and they have been set to index.
    I would suggest that you go ahead and check via FTP whether the root of your website has another robots.txt file and delete it.
    Please clear your cache and check if the issue can still be reproduced.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    hi looking at the root directory i see no robots file either

    shall i go to search console and try mark it as resolved?

    HI Guy,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    Yes please check again from the search console since there is nothing on your site that is blocking Google bots.

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    I re submitted but it still happening I can’t see why

    Is it normal for my site map to be in the robots text file ?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    Yes this is completely normal, please delete the current sitemap, clear your cache and then resubmit a new sitemap.

    Let me know how this goes. Thank you.

    What do you mean by delete current sitemap do you mean from within the file system of the hosting package ?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the question.

    Please make use of the remove sitemap option on your GSC as shown below:

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    hi guys

    okay i have now removed it in google search console

    i have then gone and requested indexing of the home page

    do i need to re submit the site map ?


    Yes, please re-submit the sitemap.

    Also, please share a few examples of the URLs that are showing up as no-indexed so we can check.

    You might also want to check robots settings for each of your post and taxonomy types in WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Titles & Meta

    We look forward to helping you.
