Errors in Search Console due to empty/reference CMS items


#1

With the arrival of the new Google Search Console, some of my clients have contacted me about all the errors that are showing up. They probably don’t normally check the Search Console but they received an email from Google introducing it - clicked into it and saw a page like the image below showing lots of page errors.

These errors are all due to <meta name="robots" content="noindex"> on all CMS collection and items which are only used for reference - i.e. they have no content on them so I don’t want Google to index them. The problem is that they are included in the sitemap which is automatically generated by Webflow.

I just wanted to make Webflow aware of this issue and the wishlist item associated with it - https://wishlist.webflow.com/ideas/WEBFLOW-I-695
