Common Issues of Indexing

  • You might have given no-index tag on robots.txt
  • You might have placed a no-index tag on the header. 
  • You might have given canonical tag
  • You might have redirected the URL 


Note: If you block a particular webpage on robots.txt, there is still a chance for that page to get indexed through internal linkings,  So if you want to stop a page from being indexed, it’s always better to place a no-index tag on the header part.
