Google Search Console doesn't like Checkout page set to noindex

Google Search Console has detected:

Submitted URL marked 'noindex'


Even if I set the checkout menu item's / metadata / Robots / to "index" it does not affect the checkout page's <meta name=robots content="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW, NOARCHIVE, NOSNIPPET"/>

I'm assuming that there was a reason VM put this hardcoded robot content in the checkout PHP.  But I still need to resolve this coverage issue in Google Search Console to make the client happy.

What do you think is the best way to deal with this?

checkout page s not good for seo. So od not add it to goggle search index


You need to exclude the checkout page menu item from your sitemap.


For cart we use "no index" too, is the right option.
But important - url for cart we don't send into sitemaps.  - new portal for Joomla!, Virtuemart and other extensions
XML Easy Feeder - feeds for FB, GMC,.. from products, categories, orders, users, articles, acymailing subscribers and database table
Virtuemart Email Manager - customs email templates
Import products for Virtuemart - from CSV and XML
Rich Snippets - Google Structured Data
VirtueMart Products Extended - Slider with products, show Others bought, Products by CF ID and others filtering products


I made sure it was not in the sitemap.
