    Hi,

    Whenever I type my website on google. Below my website name and description It shows Page No 24, Page No. 25 …

    Looks like google is indexing the Archive pagination number.

    Can anyone help me?

    Yoast setting:
    Taxonomies- Show Categories in search results? No

    Screenshot.

    We checked on your site and since the home page is your blog page, it is a paginated archive. Are you wanting to remove the separate pages from the Google results and only have the home page indexed?

    Depending on what a user searches in Google, the best result for their search may not come from them going to the first page of a paginated archive. Also, we don’t recommend setting additional pages in a paginated archive to not be indexed as that can cause Google to not follow the links on that page. We have more information on this in the following article: https://yoast.com/pagination-seo-best-practices/

    Thank you for your reply.

    Should I leave it like that? I am ok if there is no side effect in have those pagination numbers in the search results. No one will search my direct website on google though.

    We recommend allowing Google to index paginated content. It helps keep all of your content available to Google.

    I did notice that the links shown below the search results (like in the screenshot) are the so-called Sitelinks and they are automatically generated by Google based on your site structure. It’s not based on our plugin’s settings. The Yoast plugin automatically adds all the necessary Schema needed to generate Sitelinks. So you won’t need to change anything from the plugin.

    You could signal to Google which links you want to appear by using the following actions:
