Even I have set Yoast Seo Pluign to stop Google from indexing tag and category.


#2

Go to Yoast SEO plugin > Search Appearance > Tags > Set Noindex / Hide from the Search results

I did it already.

You need to wait for a month, it will get noindex automatically.


#5

Actually, I did it. That’s why I mention the 24 Nov article. I did it in the beginning of the November.

Should I need to put some code in my robots.txt file?

No. Never.

You can remove it another ways (quickly)

Go to Search console > Remove URLS and enter tag path > Hide directory


#7

I will apply this.

Thanks! for your support.
