Google Search Console pages excluded 1.34k.I had a massive drop in rankings but NOT for the pages excluded.
1. 134K excluded since 24th October
2. URL inspecton - Indexed, not submitted in sitemap
3. Crawled - currently not indexed - Status: Excluded
What I have checked:
1. Robots.txt NOT blocking URL
2. I did submit a sitemap but its a WordPress website and ALL the pages excluded are PHP custom pages and NOT in the sitemap.
I have checked all on page SEO issues but nothing, some pages are indexed but some not. Has anyone had this issue please? My traffic is down 70+%.
I now also created a sitemap for those pages and submitted.
