  • Resolved Uranbold



    I have disabled the Taxonomy category in Google Index. But it has displayed on Search Result.

    How many times do i wait for the result actually in? Can i check the Robots.txt or something?

    Is Robots.txt need permission or something? How can i check it?

    In order for pages that noindexed to be removed from Google search results, this first requires that Googlebot re-crawls the page in question. On average, Google will automatically re-crawl a site every 48-72 hours, but this can vary depending on other factors. However, if you have your site setup in Google Search Console you can force Google to re-crawl a page by using the ‘Fetch as Googlebot’ feature.
    We also we have a guide on using the ‘Fetch as Googlebot’ feature here:

    In regards to robots.txt, Yoast SEO does not use the robots.txt file to tell Google to noindex a page; it instead inserts a robots meta tag set to ‘noindex’ into your page.
