In this insightful video, the speaker delves into the concept of Meta Robots No Index Tag, its application in WordPress, and how to resolve exclusion issues in Google Search Console. The video provides a practical guide on handling Meta Robots No Index Tag on a bulk amount of URLs or on a single page in WordPress. The speaker, a seasoned search team marketer, shares his expertise on page speed optimization, technical SEO, and conversion rate optimization.
The Meta Robots No Index Tag is a useful tool in SEO. It communicates to search engines not to display a particular page in organic search results. If a page is marked with a No Index Tag, it will not appear in Google's organic search results. This feature is particularly useful for pages that may create duplicate content or are otherwise unwanted.
Google Search Console is a valuable tool for identifying pages affected by the No Index Tag. By navigating to the 'Pages Not Indexed' section, users can find pages excluded by the No Index Tag. It's essential to analyze whether these pages should appear in Google Search Results. In some cases, pages are intentionally marked as No Index to prevent them from appearing in search results.
If a user wants to change the No Index Tag to an Index Tag, they can do so in the backend of their WordPress website. Using an SEO plugin, such as Rank Math or All in One SEO, users can edit the Meta Robots Tag for a large volume of URLs or a specific URL. However, it's crucial to remember that changing a page to No Index or No Follow means it will not appear in Google Search Results.
In WordPress, users can set the Meta Robots No Index Tag for specific pages, categories, or the entire website. For instance, if a user doesn't want tag pages to appear in search results, they can set the preference to No Index. Similarly, if a user doesn't want their entire website to appear in search results, they can set the global Meta Data to No Index. For individual pages, users can set the preferences to Index, No Index, Follow, No Follow, No Archive, No Image Index, or No Snippet, depending on their needs.
Understanding and effectively using the Meta Robots No Index Tag is crucial for SEO. By identifying and fixing exclusion issues in Google Search Console, users can optimize their website's visibility in search results. Whether handling Meta Robots No Index Tag on a bulk amount of URLs or a single page in WordPress, the process is straightforward and can significantly impact a website's SEO performance.
