    Please open one of the example tag URLs that Google warns is marked as ‘noindex’ in a browser window. Viewing the source code the the example tag URL, is there a robots line that includes ‘noindex’?

    If you are unsure how to view the source code, please review this knowledge base article: How To View The Page Source of Your Site

    Ho amboutwe,

    no, I didn’t find anything like noindex in the sources. That’s the page: view-source:

    I have 1140 tags anmd 1110 errors, so it’s more or less all tags pages.

    Using a handful of tools, I do not see any reason that specific tag URL (and a few other random ones I checked previously) would show a ‘noindex’ warning.

    Does the URL inspection tool‘s live test show any errors with the tag URLs?

    If the live test shows the tag URLs can be indexed, please request re-indexing by clicking ‘Validate Fix’ on the error report in Google Search Console. This may have to be requested multiple times to get through 1000+ URLs.
