Noindex for Taximonies Not Working (3 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.5.2
    WordPress SEO version: 1.4.12

    I did this:
    Under the settings for taxonomies in the settings page, I checked no-index and follow for all tags and archives for my website http://onlinediamondbuyingguide.com

    I expected the plugin to do this:
    Avoid duplicate content of that shows tags in the search engines. Avoid any indexing of another tags pages in Google

    Instead it did this:
    If you do a search for site: onlinediamondbuyingguide.com/ @tag/
    (remove the space@), you will see results of indexation inside Google's results.

    When I clicked on any of the result pages, and do a view source, the page source actually shows noindex in the source code. The question here is, why is Google still indexing the pages despite having a noindex tags on it?

    I have noticed this issue for months now and thought it would go away. But it simply didn't.

    Anyone can offer advice on this?

    Bump. Does anyone has any idea on what's going on with the indexation?

    This is not an issue with the plugin - as you yourself say: the noindex tag is added to the page source, so the plugin does what it's supposed to do -.

    Ask google what's up ?
