Disable tags,category & author page from indexing on search engines


When i was creating backlinks for my site on certain keyword. My Category page and tags are ranking for that keyword. How to disable them to rank my main site url?


You don’t really need to de-index ‘Categories’ mate, but you can do that for ‘Tags’ instead if you have installed Yoast SEO plugin, go to Titles & Metas > Taxonomies and here you can de-index or no-index them!

What you are facing is a common issue, try to give more social signals to that article, and within a few weeks, things should be okay. :slight_smile:


Thank you bro !! :slight_smile: Actually My site taking much time to rank on that particular keyword.
Any way to rank that particular keyword fastly?


Try internal linking bro! If your target keyword is “Best AdSense Alternatives”, then you can mention this keyword on all the related articles on your website and interlink! :slight_smile:
