I seem to be having an issue with one of my posts being able to be indexed. I received a message from Google console that my categories are "Submitted URL marked 'no index' as an error. 404" Has anyone else experienced this?
The other issue is that Google appears to be seeing my pictures as URLs? and not able to index them? I think?. As I get the error under "Submitted URL marked 'noindex'.
Wanted to check with everyone here before submitting to Site Help. Hoping someone else has had this issue and it's an easy fix.
Cheers, Eliza

Hi Eliza,
Have you checked your settings within your Wordpress for the noindex issue?

Are you using Yoast or the all-in-one-seo plugin?

There are settings there that you can change so that your posts/categories are no-index.

Check the settings there.

Google is only responding to this setup.

Hope this helps.

Hi Jackie, I'm using the all-in-one-seo plugin. I forgot about Yoast. Which do you think is better?
Do you know if the errors in Google Console are preventing the indexing or are they just making me aware that these are my settings?

Hi Eliza,
I'm using the all-in-one-seo plugin. I find it easier to work with and it's what is recommended in the training here.

If you have no-index checked on your post, this is Google just warning you as they would love to index your posts :-)

I only use the no-index on my privacy and disclaimer pages (as taught in the training here).

Do check the all-in-one-seo settings on that post that Google Console is reporting the issue.

All the best!

Let me know if you're still having issues.

Hi Eliza,
I've checked my all-in-one-settings and the 'Use no index for categories' option is UNCHECKED. That will get rid of one of the Google Console errors if you have it checked.

For the post issue check the all-in-one-seo settings at the BOTTOM of the post in question (go into edit mode for the post).

All the best!
