I published our site to our custom domain a few weeks a go and it still has not been picked up by google. I’m assuming that I have done/not done something in WebFlow because I have never had this issue with sites outside of WebFlow
This morning I read the “help text” alongside the “Disable Webflow subdomain indexing” it says
If indexing is disabled, a unique robots.txt will be published only on the subdomain telling search engines to ignore the domain. (The actual content is: User-Agent: * Disallow: /)
This confuses me with talk of sub domains as we are not using a subdomian on our custom domain AND that the option is Webflow Indexing. Is it this option (it was set to Yes (Disabled) ) that was preventing the website from being indexed by google?
Looking at this question and reply from Jeff (Website NOT showing up in Google and Search Console) it looks like that is exactly why we were not being indexed. That option is IMHO badly named surely it should be “Disable Indexing”
I now find my self in a slightly tricky situation where I have page changes I do not want to publish yet but SEO Project Settings that I do want to publish. I assume there is not way of just publishing the global project settings is there?
