Problem with Google search was created by alepar
Hi,
when I search my website with Google, it appears this text: "The webmaster has forbidden your access to this site".

I search: actainfo

Problem with the firewall?

Hi alepar,

I think this means that there are some google bots IPs blocked. Do you see 403 error messages in your Google console?

Regards,
Jose

Umm, it's odd. Maybe in the past?

The firewall only returns that message for IPs blacklisted or added to geoblock, and Google indexed it sometime.

I have had the same issue when using google fetch and render or google's mobile friendly test, and found, through my hosting company, that it only happens when using www.mydomain.org and not with non www. But they and I still don't know why.

Hi Joe,

Thank you very much for your contribution.

Maybe there is no canonical url and google thinks there are two different urls (www and non-www). In Joomla there is an easy way to tell google that an url is canonical; just go to plugins and look for "sef" term. You should get the System -SEF plugin. Entering on it if you put the url to your site in the "Site Domain" field every url will have the tag "canonical".

Also the .htaccess protection can add a line to redirect non www queries to www. This way we would have only one entry for every url in google.

Regards,
Jose
