Tags and Category are set on follow, noindex

    Rank Math free


    I’m using the Rankmatch plugin for a long time now and are very happy with it but I noticed that the Product tag and Product Category pages are always set on <meta name=”robots” content=”follow, noindex”/> no matter the settings in Rankmath.

    Is this an error in the plugin or can it be changed?

    Many thanks,

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

    Could you make sure you have some product assigned to that tag/category? Rank Math has a feature to set as no-index tags/categories without products/posts to avoid Google penalizing the site due to thin content.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    Hello, thanks for your quick reply.
    I see that when you scroll down on the page (Infinitive scrolling) and the page is getting behind the url /page/2/, /page/3/ etc only then it puts the noindex.

    Is this a normal behavior how it should be?

    Thanks for your reply,


    You seem to have set the paginated archives to noindex.

    Although that is fine and recommended, you can change that behaviour from WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Titles & Meta > Misc. pages.

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