Possible conflict with Genesis Theme adding NOindex on author archives

Thread Starter


I figured out what was going on, in Search Appearance there is a setting for:

Show author archives without posts in search resultsShow author archives without posts in search results

Disabling this means that author archives without any posts will not be indexed by search engines and will be excluded from XML sitemaps.

Turning this on, enabled indexing.
