Lighthouse Report: Crawling and Indexing- page is blocked from indexing

Hi Everyone,

After deploying my site, my Lighthouse report is indicating that my page is blocked from indexing and references the ‘blocking directive source’ as: x-robots-tag: noindex. I don’t have this in my code anywhere and this is the first time this has happend so if anyone has insight on this I’d appreciate the help. Thanks in advance!



Link to Site:

I believe this is because the Lighthouse plugin uses a Netlify domain to run, Netlify automatically inserts this tag to ensure it’s pages are not picked up by search engines.
A consequence of this is that Lighthouse reports generated this way always include a warning for this tag.

Importantly it doesn’t mean it will be on your production site.
