  • Hi Shufflehound team,

    Our website is dailyspin.id

    All of my articles featured images are not displayed on Google Search, Google News snippets, or even Google Image. Even though posts are crawled & indexed properly, the images just don’t appear. This really hurts our website because we can’t rank on Google Discover (it requires image snippet), which is a crucial traffic source for media websites like us.

    These are several articles for examples:

    These articles are crawled & indexed in Google Search Console and Google Structured Data Test. There are no errors from Google. But I’m not sure why the images are still not appearing.

    If you know what might be the culprit, or perhaps some plugins that have history to clash with Gillion / Unyson. Please let me know.

    Thank you. Let me know if you need more information.

    Hi @vickwinata,

     

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

     

    I am not sure exactly why this is happening for you but it seems you are using an older version of the theme on your website so please update it to the below latest version as described here https://support.shufflehound.com/updating-theme/

    Hi Shufflehound team,

    Thank you, I’ll update it to that version. In that case, would a new update notification be available on the wordpress admin? or would I need to download manually like that every time there’s an update?

    Ok will post the questions on Yoast plugin support as well. Thanks for the tip.

    This is a premium theme so you don’t get notifications about the update and you have to update the theme manually.

     

    If you want to get the notifications then you can do so using the below plugin.

    Hi, I still haven’t resolved this issue. But I found out an interesting finding on my header.

    There’s a NOFOLLOW on the x-robots-tag. You can try to see the header on this link example: https://dailyspin.id/esports/mobile-legends/hasil-playoffs-mpl-id-season-6-day-2-onic-esports-gugur

    Is that supposed to be there? The NOFOLLOW? If not, how can we remove it?

    I attach the screenshot of my header request & response here.

    The theme does not add any such tags but the Yoast SEO plugin adds it as described on the below page.

    Solution for this topic

    Actually, we found out what the culprit is! We had a plugin that caused the x-robots-tag = NOFOLLOW.

    So yesterday we installed a chrome add ons called “HTTP Header Spy”. Then we deactivate all plugins and activate them one by one. And we found out the culprit. It is this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/redirection.

    We cleared delete the plugin, clear cache, and refresh. Voila! The x-robots-tag = NOFOLLOW is gone!

    Hours later, Google began to index our images again!

    Now it can show as a snippet in Google Discover!
