The solution is the same as for X-Robots noindex a folder of PDFs and Prevent XML sitemaps from showing up in Google search results. You use the X-Robots-Tag HTTP header rather than a meta tag. The HTTP header served with the txt file should look like: X-Robots-Tag: noindex After implementing the HTTP header, remove the disallow from your robots.txt. ...

Your robots.txt file is wrong. You are preventing the site from being indexed by GoogleBot or by any other crawler. In case you want every bot to access your site, then it should be like this: User-agent: * Allow: / Regarding the https://static.doubleclick.net/instream/ad_status.js error, If the warning/error is about a site not in your control, then I ...

Domain properties can't connect with GA for the moment. To link with GSC with GA just added the URL of your website as property (you just need to add the actual URL of your website). Normally it's https://example.com or https://www.example.com

Domain properties in Google Search console are great, but they are not fully functional. You can't add them to Google Analytics, there are missing reports, and missing settings compared to prefix properties. It would be nice just to just add a domain property, but Google hasn't built enough functionality for them yet. Google says long term, you should ...

Sign up for a free account on https://uptimerobot.com/ Added your website to monitoring service, you will know if the problem is related to your hosting provider. That's the best way as I think.

Here's what I did: Google wouldn't index the sub-page even after several times I asked for re-index (for over a week) because it was a duplicate content (to Google) although it wasn't really duplicate. I did then a content rewrite and requested re-index in Search Console. It got indexed in 1-2 days. However, the keyword's position was lost. I wanted to make ...

Both of your webpages have 100% duplicate content. At the same time, both of these web pages have a canonical meta-link pointing to itself. This tells Google that the content of both webpages has your priority and that you want to show links to both contents in search results: Why should I choose a canonical URL? There are a number of reasons why you would ...

Turns out it was because I had a button that linked to a '404 Error page game' that I had made, and Google chose to interpret that as a Soft 404, which is pretty annoying. If the page contains terms like 404, not found, etc, Google seems to flag that as a Soft 404 (which kinda makes sense, but is a bit annoying) I still have the issue with Bing, but they ...

tl;dr You probably just need to give Google more time to resolve the canonical issue, but the failure to find the site based solely on the domain name is not necessarily fixable. These are two unrelated issues. Just because the "other" search engines return your site for a match on the domain name does not necessarily make them correct. If I search ...

There is nothing special you have to do in Google Search Console. There are no special features for changing your URL paths built into Google Search Console. The only special feature built into to Google Search Console for URL changes is the Change of Address Tool. It is for domain name changes and can't be used for URL path changes. You just need to give ...

I'll answer my own question for those who might have the same issue in the future. The problem was a malware that ended up in a lot of my WP install files. How it got there? I don't know exactly. I changed the passwords for the FTP, WP admin, database, and modified the CHMOD for several folders that were a security risk. Also Wordfence + All in ONE WP ...
