  • This is an unsually error I have never experinced. But we just swapped this site from Shopify to WordPress on Friday and Google Serach Console is brining back the following error upon inspection.
    Submitted URL marked ‘noindex’

    I have searched the code and have not found any “noindex” and also the robot.txt is proper as produced by Yoast SEO. I also delelted the old sitemap and adding the new one.

    Hi @aderosa1031,

    Check out these steps below to resolve the error message:

    1.Make sure that the URL is entered correctly and it corresponds with an existing page that doesn’t return a 404/5xx error message.

    2.Verify that your page and/or site is not marked as hidden from search results. In this case, the page/site would have a “noindex” tag in the code.

    3.Verify that your page/site is not protected by password or for members only. In these cases, the page/site will have a “noindex” tag in the code.

    4.If the page is not hidden/ for members only/ protected by a password then inspect the URL using Google’s URL Inspection Tool.

    5.Check the date below Last crawled in the Google Search Console report. If the date is over a month ago, the error message is not relevant anymore.

    6.If you’ve checked all of the above and the page is still not indexed, request Google to index your site by clicking Request Indexing in the URL inspection tool.

    Let me know if my answer can help you resolve your issue.
