Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Noindex for Taximonies Not Working

  • 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

    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: @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 ?
