All in One SEO Pack

    Hello,

    I've installed All in One SEO on site that I developed and I have one page that I want to set as non-searchable page.
    That page was being setup 6 days ago and checked "Robots Meta Noindex"
    I saw this morning that the page is being indexed by Google
    Here's my page http://octoclean.com/test-respond-page

    I tried to view source page and couldn't found "noindex"
    Do you have any clue why is that?

    Many thanks,
    Dee

    Hi Dee,

    NOINDEX is present on line 79 of your source code:

    <!-- All in One SEO Pack 2.1 by Michael Torbert of Semper Fi Web Design[382,429] -->
    <meta name="description" content="At here, you can comment anything about our services. We will try to respond to you soon." />
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow" />

    NOINDEX is just a request, some search engines don't always obey it. Plus it may take Google a few weeks to update their index so until they do that the page will still appear in SERPS. Use Google Webmaster Tools to request Google remove that page from their index - https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1663419

    Hi wpsmort,

    Thanks for your reply.
    Yes, I just found out the same as your answer also I checked the page using http://www.scrubtheweb.com/ and it said :
    This submitted web page prevents all search engines from indexing this page. Because of this we have removed the submitted URL from our confirmation database. You may resubmit this URL once you correct this problem.

    Means that the plugin is working and I just need to wait.
    Thanks once again.

    Cheers,
    Dee
