Hi Chinthaka
The info below is all accurate ... assuming you are using AIOSEO plugin. Which tool are you using for SEO?

When you go into each post or page after the content scroll down do you see a SEO section where you can uncheck NO FOLLOW NO INDEX?

If not all of your Post And Pages Are affected the settings should be on each individual POST or Page.

Hey Chinthaka,

I'm still fairly new to this, so I'm not quite sure how to solve your problem.

It appears as though your posts have a no-follow attribute associated with them.

I'm not sure how to handle follow and no follow attributes with posts.

I have created a menu link from my website to another one of my websites and after a little research I found out how to apply the no-follow attribute to that.

However, I'm pretty sure it is not the same for posts.

I did just have a look at where we edit our posts and at the top right, it says publish.

In there it says visibility, is that clicked to public on the posts that you are having trouble with?

If not click it to public and update to see if that helps.

Although, if it is clicked to public or you do that and it still doesn't work then I'm sorry, you will have to get help from someone more experienced than me.

I hope you get it sorted out!

Hey Chinthaka,

Looks though you may have clicked on the option to NOFOLLOW and NOINDEX that is offered in a separate window below EACH of those posts in whatever SEO plugin you are using.

Once you UNCHECK those options, you can go back to Google Analytics and click the button to verify you have fixed this issue. You will probably need to verify EACH post being fixed.

Hope you find this helpful,

Open one of the posts mentioned in your WordPress website, though you were going to edit the post. Then... scroll down to BELOW the area that your post content sits in.

Not knowing WHICH SEO plugin you are using... whether Block or Classic Editor used, I cannot even provide you with a screen print as there are far too many choices.

The area I refer too will be easy enough to spot once you sign into your WordPress Dashboard and get one of the posts in your list, ready though you were going to edit the content.
