    @yemafu Can you please provide us with an example URL of one the URLs so that we can check whether the noindex metatag is being output correctly?

    You can also check this by viewing the source code of one of the tag pages and checking for the noindex tag.

    There are a number of ways you can set pages to noindex, so we would recommend checking all of them. You can check this setting by performing the following actions:

      • Go to the Edit screen for a tag
      • Scroll down to the Yoast metabox
      • Click on the ‘Advanced’ area
      • For ‘Allow search engines to show this tag in search results?’ make sure this is set to ‘No’
      * Note (setting this value to Yes will set meta robots to index and setting No would set meta robots to noindex)

    In addition, you can set tags to be indexed by performing the following actions:

      • In WordPress go to SEO>Search Appearance>Taxonomies
      • For Tags/strong> set ‘Show Tags in search results’ to ‘No’
      • Click ‘Save Changes’

    We also have a guide on how to set a tag to noindex here:

    We understand that Google is showing the /feed in the search results which you don’t wish to see. Yoast SEO doesn’t generate the /feed but WordPress itself does. However, Google still shouldn’t show the /feed in the search results for you.

    To disable the /feed indexing and showing them in the search results, you can add the noindex robots in the HTTP header of the /feed URL. Unfortunately, the Yoast SEO plugin has no such feature for this. So, you may want to either use a 3rd party plugin or manually implement such code on your site.
