Indexing request rejected

Recommended Posts


I'm having trouble with one of my pages on my site whilst the other six pages are behaving fine. The troublesome page is my home page:


Google Search Console says 'Indexing Request Rejected'. It has a background video, hidden header and footer sections and the only text on the page only after a couple of seconds delay whilst the vide plays.

Any idea what I have to do to get this page indexed? I'd prefer not have to change the design obvisouly!

Thanks very much,

My guess is that because this is your homepage you don't need that URL slug indexed because it is effectively a duplicate of www.mattbairdsound.com and not the primary URL for that page. This is normal. Just make sure that www.mattbairdsound.com is indexed.
