[resolved] Custom Nav Menu Noindex (6 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I have a problem and can't seem to work it out.

    I have created a custom menu to use as my navigation, the problem is, they are set to noindex, dofollow. How can I make them so they are indexed and dofollow?

    The website is treatdoganxiety.com and it's the top navigation (under the header) I am having problems with. If I click on "dog training" for example, my nofollow chrome extension tells me the following -

    Meta-Robots NoFollow: false
    Meta-Robots NoIndex: true

    Any ideas how I can sort this out so its - Meta-Robots NoIndex: false ?

    Thanks for any help

    What's the difference in how you've set up 'Dog Separation Anxiety' verses the other menu items. This one is indeed set to rel="index follow"

    The fix might be to install and SEO plugin, like WordPress SEO by Yoast, which has specific setting for the rel attributes.

    Hi Kevin,

    Thanks for the reply.

    There is no difference on how I have set up "Dog Separation Anxiety" verses the other menu items. I just used a custom menu. They are category pages but I wanted them at the top.

    I have WordPress SEO by yoast installed and have even selected the option in the category section to follow these pages but it has not worked.

    This is a tricky one I can't get my head around!

    Are the individual pages (posts) marked as

    Meta Robots Index: Index
    Meta Robots Follow: Follow

    rather than just the category? Something is different.

    Thanks for the reply again Kevin.

    I did not create any pages or posts, as you can see if you click dog aggression (I have not wrote an article yet with the category dog aggression).

    So I decided to create a page for dog training and have it set to index, follow via a wordpress plugin (WordPress Meta Robots) but this has seemed to not work either!

    Very confused. Any ideas?

    For anyone interested, my meta robot plugin was causing the problem, maybe conflicting with the Yoast plugin, not sure, but it's sorted! :D
