Non-Indexable Pages with Visits

Non-indexable pages which have received organic search traffic

Priority: Low

Impact: Negative

What issues it may cause

If a page with a noindex has generated visits, it could be that a nonidex has been added within the report period.

If a canonicalized URL is getting visits then it's likely that search engines are ignoring the suggested canonical.

How do you fix it

The pages with a noindex should be investigated to make sure that the noindex directive is appropriate for those pages.

The canonicalised pages should be reviewed for potential canonical errors such as the content not being equivalent.

What is the positive impact

Page with potential search value can stay indexed and retain their organic search traffic and conversions.
