    Submitted URL marked ‘noindex’
    First detected: 7/8/18
    Status: Error
    It says 70 affected pages. None of them are my actual posts or pages, but are Wordpress tags, categories, and pages such as: https://wehearthandmadeboots.com/2020/01/
    which is a category page that the limit of posts might be set to say 5 and then there is a "See More" button at the bottom of the page so it would go to /02/ /03/ etc...

    Is this hurting my site and should if so, what should I fix?

    My rankings aren't really going up and they kind of suck.

    Thanks,

    P.S. I know how to fix it and change the NoIndex settings, I'm just wondering if I should or not? Also, if you see anything else on my site to fix, that would be greatly appreciated!

    Tag and Category pages are a good way to link to other more useful pages like posts, so you should fix the noindex setting for these.

    Some don't seem to be tags or categories. I uploaded a .jpg. Any idea why these aren't being indexed?

    I think I figured out what that was (paginated pages/posts).
    I ended up unchecking the following 2 also:

    Use noindex for paginated pages/posts
    and
    Use nofollow for paginated pages/post

    I don't use wordpress my friend, so am not sure what that thing does, but looks like you already did the changes to remove the noindex.
    Good Luck :)
