    We understand that you’ve set your particular page to noindex but is still appearing in the search results. Based on the provided screenshots we confirmed this page is set to noindex. As we checked that page returns 404 and appears on the search results.

    Fetch as Googlebot can help you speed up the crawling and indexing processes.

    We hope this helps.

    When I paste the complete url from the google search result to google page console, it said that
    “URL not in property
    Inspect a URL in the currently selected property or switch properties “

    Not just that, some of the url also have this problem such as this page https://papawalker.com/listing_category/shopping/ . I also set this page to no index (https://prnt.sc/wmehpw) but it still appearing in the search result. When I’m trying to request for indexing, it rejected my request(https://prnt.sc/wmehmr).

    URL not in property.. message while inspecting the URL in Google Search Console is due to the fact that URL does not exist at all and returns 404. It is obvious.

    Further, to address this, we suggest the following actions:

    1. Clear all your caching from your theme, plugin, server, CDN like CloudFlare or browser. If you are not sure how to clear caching from theme/plugin please speak to those authors. If you want to clear cache from the server, please speak to your host provider. To clear the cache from a browser use this guide: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/how-to-clear-my-browsers-cache/.

    2. Delete your sitemap in Google. Doing so will not hurt the SEO of the site. This guide explains more (scroll to the bottom): https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/183669?hl=en.

    3. Submit the sitemap again. Be sure to submit only sitemap_index.xml and nothing else. This guide explains more: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/submit-sitemap-search-engines/.

    4. Monitor the results to see if the issue is resolved. It can take some time before Google to update its search result index after you re-submit your sitemap,

    1) Can I only use WP rocket to clear my cache ?

    2) I don’t have any sitemap.

    If your site uses WP Rocket plugin please clear the cache.

    2) I don’t have any sitemap.
