    Hello @marcorroma,

    Thank you for contacting the support and we regret the inconvenience caused.

    We checked and a few similar URLs are indexed for your website:
    https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Ahttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.corriereromagna.it+rank_math_

    These are the listings of our dynamic sitemaps. The reason for these URLs being indexed is that after adding the allow/disallow rules in the robots.txt file of the website, you’ve added the rule Allow: /, which is allowing all the URLs on the website to be crawled.

    Here’s a screenshot:
    https://i.rankmath.com/BEj6Nl

    Please remove the above rule from the robots.txt file and add these indexed URLs in the Removal tool of your Google Search Console account, so that Google removes these URLs from the SERPs.

    If you’re using the robots.txt file of Rank Math, you can follow this guide to edit it:

    Hope this helps.

    After this change, is there a risk that posts will not be indexed?

    Hello @marcorroma,

    Removing the Allow: / rule would not cause issues with the indexing of your posts.

    Robots.txt file only controls the crawling of your website, not the indexing part.

    Also, we recommend you double-check all the disallow rules you’ve added and ensure that there is no unwanted rule.

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
