Google Search Console: Submitted URL Marked 'Noindex'
4 min read
If you submitted a page for Google to index and received the Submitted URL Marked 'noindex' error message, it means that Google has identified that your page should not be indexed and displayed in search results.
The 'noindex' tag is a meta tag that you can add to a page's HTML code in order to prevent search engines from showing it in search results. However, this error message doesn't necessarily mean that there is a 'noindex' tag in your code. There can be various reasons for this error to come up, that you can easily check and fix.
If you're getting the Submitted URL Marked 'noindex' error message, try these steps:
Step 1 | Check the URL
Step 2 | Make sure search engines can index your page and site
Step 3 | Check if the page is password protected
Step 4 | Check if the page is a members only page
Step 5 | Use the URL Inspection Tool
Step 6 | Check the Last Crawled date
Step 7 | Request Google to index the page
