What are compliant pages?
What are compliant pages?

Oncrawl has a page categorization feature that allows you to see which pages can be indexed (i.e. compliant pages) and which ones can't.

Updated over a week ago

The term "compliant pages" refers to those pages that Oncrawl identifies as indexable and which return a 200 OK status code. They respect conditions defined by Google and they will not be regarded as non-indexable.

What conditions must compliant pages meet?

Compliant pages:

  • are not denied by robots.txt;

  • do not have no-index meta robots;

  • are neither 30x redirects nor 40x errors;

  • do not point to a different canonical from the page URL.

If your pages do not fall into any of the aforementioned categories, then they can be saved in the Google index.

How can you determine if your pages are compliant with Oncrawl?

Thanks to Oncrawl, you will be able to check if all your pages that are supposed to be indexed and create traffic are properly classified as compliant pages.

If this is not the case, you can use Oncrawl to detect errors in the indexing directives returned to search engines.

To see the list of pages in each category and check the URLs, you can click on each column of the Pages by state of indexation graph. This graph is available via the following path: Crawl report > Indexability > What is indexable.

By clicking on Pages by state of indexation graph, you will be redirected to a pre-filtered Data explorer page for each group.
