Support » Plugin: AMP » Alternate page with proper canonical tag

  • Resolved Imran Kanjoo


    HI, Google is excluding the posts which has ?amp at the end. I understand that there is no issue with the pages because they have proper canonical tag.

    The issue is that, because of these urls google is not crawling the actual pages. I can see from last two months, the pages with ?amp are crawled but the actual pages are not being crawled.
    My reborts.txt is also does not have any issue.
    Is it because google wants to crawl those pages but it detects amp and excludes amp because of canonical tag and does not crawl the actual pages? It has passed more than two months, what should I do in this case? Here are the images screenshots.
    The excluded pages with amp tag
    The actual pages/posts

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • @imran_kanjoo thanks for your topic!

    While this may be a question for Search Console Help, note that these areas of the Index Coverage report indicate the following in the documentation:

    Alternate page with proper canonical tag: This page is a duplicate of a page that Google recognizes as canonical. This page correctly points to the canonical page, so there is nothing for you to do.

    Discovered – currently not indexed: The page was found by Google, but not crawled yet. Typically, Google wanted to crawl the URL but this was expected to overload the site; therefore Google rescheduled the crawl. This is why the last crawl date is empty on the report.

    So it looks like Search Console has detected both the non-AMP and AMP URLs, but indexing is pending (which may take some time).
