Google search console url "no index" and crawl issue error?

Google search console url "no index" and crawl issue error?

asked in
Search Engine Optimization

Quick questions on fixing a couple of errors on Google Search Console.

So the first issue is Google is being told to crawl my category pages (blog roll of posts in a ca

Google SHOULD crawl your category pages. It won't index them, but categories are a good way for Google to be able to see all your content.

If Google is showing a 404 for pages you never published, it's probably because spam websites are linking to random things on your site that don't exist. If they link to mywebsite.com/no-url, Google will still attempt to crawl that URL even if it doesn't exist.

Hey Brok,

Perhaps the following video will provide you with the assistance you are looking for: Hope this helps you.

This advice says to "exclude the page or the blog". Does that mean your whole site will not be indexed?

Not sure where you heard me saying that Tj, as WordPress scripts see pages and posts as the same. Nowhere did I say to exclude the blog.

If your Google Analytics shows the errors as I have clearly shown you in the video, then you need to add only those pages or posts to your exclusion list so that Google scripts will be happy with your website.

Thanks for clarifying. Was rather concerned!

The Technical team also said no need to worry.

Keep safe & have a great day.

Thanks for sharing these issues. I have not had them or seen them but great to know that they might be around and then how to deal with them if they do.

I'd update your sitemap plugin settings to not include categories, yes it's that simple, and then I'd rebuild the sitemap and resubmit it.

Perfect thanks for the response! Any experience with the URLs trying to be crawled that aren't published?

Social Engagement & Marketing

So this morning I went to share my latest post on social media and all went well until I went to share on Facebook and got an error (was using the social share buttons on my si

Did you look at the pictures on your site?
In Europe we laugh our head off because FB put off a page from a museum which showed the picture of old masters.

If you shared multiple posts in quick succession that can do it. Happened to me, I posted in about 6 groups a post from my page, one after the other.

FB sees this as spam, hence violating their TOS and poof page gone!

I now post my blog to my page and share to one or two groups each day, spaced out over a period of an hour or so and so far it hasn’t been a problem.

A direct affiliate link, even shortened or using pretty links is likely to get you banned as well apparently.

I also publish without links so at least our articles get shared.

This is terrible. That's why I'm very timid when it comes to Facebook. Those guys are very unpredictable. I don't even have a page there. I just go straight to groups and publish my new posts. Facebook is not really worth my time. When it comes to them I use a very long spoon.

Sorry about your page being taken down. I hope you figure it out soon enough.

I do recall reading sth about the niche being a problem. You could try creating a group instead but I can't say for sure that will solve your problem.

WOW!!! That is awful!!!

I think with all the fake news there most likely have been some changes, as they are taking precautions. But I think the process is very subjective.

If your page actually violates FB's ToS, they should be able to tell you what the violation is and it seems like they can't.

That's awful. I know that lately FB has been making many people's lives hell with their new policies.

Did you have links attached to your articles if so that's why. FB catches that and feels your being sneaky just like google+ if it has links they will let you know about it. I never share an article that has any affliate links on it.
