Have you experienced some of your pages disappearing in rankings right after adding a new property in GSC?

In GSC I am getting the notification that 'Duplicate, submitted URL not seleected as canonical'.

Of course the pages affected by this are in my Top 5 traffic producing pages.

I believe it happened when I added the non-www version of the website as a new property in GSC. Anyone run into this problem and find a fix? enter image description here

  • It looks like your user declared canonical doesn't have the www. Are using canonical meta tags or submitting a sitemap with the non-www property? May 2 at 18:42
  • Have you added it as a Domain Property? Adding it as a separate www or non-www would likely require some additional setup, like setting a preferred domain.
