Does Rank math recommend indexing events? I find conflicting information whether its good or bad for a local business. Also indexing events-tags, event-categories etc…?

I use https://theeventscalendar.com/ plugin right now. My fear is the duplicate content. The events I host are pretty much the same ones every year. For example every February we do a heart health workshop? We host 1-2 events every month.

  1. Hello, Thank you for your query, and welcome to the group.

    The only real issue with indexing events is the fact that likely, the page will still appear on SERPs even after the event has passed because it can take Google a couple of weeks to de-index those pages.

    This can result in some pages of your website being shown on SERPs and throwing a 404 error.

    As for the duplicate content, that’s not a negative ranking factor for Google: https://www.searchenginejournal.com/google-duplicate-content-is-not-a-negative-ranking-factor/394321/

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
