  • I’m using WordPress 4.1. and am trying to figure out where to put a no index meta tag on my woo commerce product pages. I think Google is penalizing my site because it views these pages as having thin content.

    You can see the type of page I’m talking about at http://mchumor.com/cartoon/6990-computer-cartoon/

    Google Webmaster Tools site says, “place the following meta tag into the <head> section of your page: <meta name=”robots” content=”noindex”>”

    Problem is, I can’t figure out where the <head> code is for these pages.

    A web designer designed the them, and no matter how many times I asked him to walk me through the templates and other stuff, he never did. But I digress.

    I once was able to edit a typo on the pages via Theme Functions” (functions.php) in Appearance – Editor, but I didn’t see <head> anywhere in its code.

    Something else that looks like it’s connected to the product pages is called “content-single-product.php (woocommerce/content-single-product.php)” but it also doesn’t have <head> in the code.

    In fact, none of the 30 plus templates have <head> in their code.

    Help.

    Thank you so much.

  • Hi

    Not sure if you still need a solution for this but you can put this in your functions.php and just change the category names in the array – ‘xxxx’to the ones on your site. You can add more categories if you need to by adding them with ,’xxx’ into the array.

    function add_tagseo_metarob()
    {
    if (‘product’ == get_post_type()){
    if ( has_term( array(‘xxxx’, ‘xxxxx’), ‘product_cat’ )) {
    ?>
    <meta name=”robots” content=”noindex”>

    <?php
    }}

    }
    add_action(‘wp_head’, ‘add_tagseo_metarob’);
