I'm fairly completely confused about what Google is doing to our website re: canonical pages and sudden exclusions.
For example, the search console is showing me more than a hundred URLs which were excluded which should be fine in the index. (I have looked at both the "old" search engine console and the new beta one.)
I have no clue what to do here. They are excluding things at random, it looks like. For example:
is suddenly "excluded" ... but not all of the ones similar to that URL. (e.g. blue_service/BDE_yellow_footballs.html
I have no idea where to even start here. The only other thing probably to note is that about a month ago, we marked all of the pages in our reference material under the "www.versionofoursite.com" as canonical, and the "versionofoursite.com" were not marked canonical.
I am about to try running a diagnostic with screaming frog. Any suggestions?
Also google's search engine is running like absolute crap this morning.
UGH. Thanks for reading...
