New to the forum, pardon me if the question was asked by others in the past, but the search did not give much of an answer to my problem.
I am new to shopify, I have added 400+ products to the store, and uploaded the sitemap to google search console for indexing.
Its been a couple of weeks, my listings aren't crawled by google, I have found the following on the search console "Excluded Discovered – currently not indexed"
I am not sure if the issue is with google or shopify. I have also resubmitted the sitemap to no avail.
Appreciate if someone can assist me with this.
Solved! Go to the solution
Can you please give us a link to the store?
Your product pages might have a NOINDEX meta tag.
Hi @Alexandru_Derev ,
My site is www.toyroo.com.au
Some of the URL in question are
Thanks in Advance.
yeah, the NOINDEX meta tag is not the problem.
Try requesting indexing explicitly from the Google Search Console under URL Inspection - "Request Indexing".
Here is a thread on Google Support that seems to have the same issue - https://support.google.com/webmasters/thread/4742165?hl=en, take a look.
Indexing will not be done instantaneously.
Google schedules your site for indexing and will inform you when it is done.
It sometimes can take several days or even a few weeks.
sorry for the way too delayed reply.
In the Google Search Console, when you go to Enhancements -> Products -> 'Either offers, review or aggregateRating should be specified' and select on of the Product Details page to the right there should be a section with the offending HTML snippet.
You'll find that most Shopify stores have a similar number. These are the pages that are blocked by default in the .robots.txt file. You'll find more information about the standard robots.txt file in he article below. Unfortunately you can't access the robots.txt file, it's one of Shopify's biggest technical SEO flaws. Google is however starting to index 'blocked' pages if they deem them relevant to to search queries.
Hope this helps!
