Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Submitted URL marked ‘noindex’

  • Hi,

    Today Google informed me that my sitemap URL is marked “noindex”. If I understand the error correctly, Google won’t crawl the sitemap because of this. Indeed, upon inspecting the HTTP headers, I see x-robots-tag: noindex.

    The sitemap is virtually generated by the Google XML Sitemaps plugin.

    How can I remove this header?


    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi Ashaduri,
    Sorry but I can’t help… Today I received exactly the same message from Google Search Console Team… And I have the same question than you !
    Hope someone there could tell us how to proceed to solve this ‘noindex’ error…
    Thanks !

    Bump this one. Got the same error mail from Google.



    Try unchecking this option:

    Include sitemap in HTML format

    It’s on Basic Options.

    I have the same problem. Unchecking did not remove the noindex

    I also have this issue, any new ideas how to solve this?

    Received the same thing from GWT also… “Submitted URL marked ‘noindex’ Your Sitemap does not contain any URLs”
