    Hello Christoskomp,

    Thanks for reaching out regarding noindexing your posts.

    Yes, the right step to take in setting all posts to noindex is what you have described and also referenced in that screenshot. However, since we are unfamiliar with your site structure, we are not sure how that will impact the custom taxonomies under the post structure that you mentioned.

    Normally, we do not expect taxonomies to be affected as you can noindex each taxonomy under the taxonomy tab in Search Appearance. However, you may want to give it a try and see how it goes.

    Ok, we will turn it off and check if the posts will be no indexed in the source code, as well as if the categories and dealstores will be affected. Could we have any problem in the SERPs ranking positions if we need to cancel this action and reactivate the toggle?

    Hello Christoskomp,

    The only problem I foresee is if you want to reverse the noindex, it may take a while for Google to recrawl your site and start showing the posts in search results. Even at that, you can always request re-indexing in Google Search Console. In the end, it is not so much of a problem, as far as I can tell.
