My site (https://wisefitnessacademy.com/) is showing a recent (last week) steep trend of increased excluded pages (and decreased valid pages) in Google Search Console and I’m not sure why.

Only 5 of the pages are “noindex” tags and haven’t changed recently.

Most of pages are “Crawled – currently not indexed”

Any insights as to why this might be?

  1. Hello, Thank you so much for getting in touch.

    If these were set to be noindex, then you would be seeing “excluded” status: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7440203?hl=en

    Google is mostly taking their time if they are crawling but not indexing. Sometimes, it might happen due to low quality or duplicate content while other times they just don’t think it is worth indexing something until after a few days/weeks.

    As long as there is an unexpected noindex tag on pages that you want indexed – you should be good to go.

    Hope that helps.
