    Hello,

    I’ve tried indexing my main page through google search console but it claims: noindex” detected in the “robots” meta tag

    However when i view-source there is not an noindex anywhere (ctrl+f). Also checked my robots.txt but it’s completly empty.

    Im not sure how to fix this it’s a major issue for me, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    We checked both robots.txt and sitemap files and both looks OK.

    We see that there nothing blocking your site from being indexed.

    Sometimes Google Search Console reports are not real-time.

    Having said that, to address this, we suggest the following actions:

    1. Clear all your caching from your theme, plugin, server, CDN like CloudFlare or browser. If you are not sure how to clear caching from theme/plugin please speak to those authors. If you want to clear cache from the server, please speak to your host provider. To clear the cache from a browser use this guide: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/how-to-clear-my-browsers-cache/.

    2. Delete your sitemap in Google. Doing so will not hurt the SEO of the site. This guide explains more (scroll to the bottom): https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/183669?hl=en.

    3. Submit the sitemap again. Be sure to submit only sitemap_index.xml and nothing else. This guide explains more: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/submit-sitemap-search-engines/.

    4. Monitor the results to see if the issue is resolved. It can take some time before Google can report on the crawled URLs after you re-submit your sitemap. Google Search Console reports are not real-time as mentioned earlier.
