[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Noindex on Tags doesn't work (4 posts)

    I have set it to not index any of the tag pages, however, I just discovered that it does index them and that changing it to no index in the settings panel doesn't change anything.

    Anyway to fix this as it is hurting my SEO.

    Ok it seems as thought it's the same issue several others and myself had a couple of versions ago.

    The way to fix it is to update the settings of each individual tag, after that it works.

    I also noticed the same thing for my CPT categories.

    So, basically I would recommend everyone to check and make sure if whatever they've set to no index is actually not being indexed because the plugin doesn't seem to do it correctly.

    Hi Guys,

    I am using Yoast SEO on a WP site. For some (horrific) reason, all pages are showing Noindex, Nofollow.

    I would rather have everything Index, Follow than NOTHING!

    Can anyone offer me some simple advice please?

    I am sort of losing faith in Yoast.
    Hey I said sort of I may have permanently damaged my nursing site because the title tag kept going blank and who knows how long until I discovered that (it has happened three terrible times that I can remember).
    The latest is that Yoast says rather snippily that he will not support qTranslate which I understand you can't support everything under the sky ..

    I don't like the commented out references to his site in my code and the blatant visible link on the sitemap index page (that I have to take out every time there is an update).

    So I am not bashing Yoast but .. I think I have to find something more 2012 and reliable.. I tried stallion that didn't seem to be on solid ground and I guess All-in-One is up for another try by me .. I forgot why I dumped them to begin with..

    Does someone have a killer SEO plugin that isn't buggy but smooth?

    FYI : I may continue to use Yoast I am just keeping my eyes open for it's replacement.
