Our website runs on angular and we have a meta tag header for bots to hit the prerender cached page. The escaped fragment version of the site is not being indexed. We also added an exclusion not to use landing pages with _escaped_fragment_ in the URL. Why is Google Adbot serving the prerender page for dsa?

Hi @Michelle C,


I would use Google Search Console to learn more about what Google Search is doing with your website. And I would submit a XML sitemap with the pages you want slurped. 


From here, it is hard to say the reason why the Google Adbot is not following your directions, but it is likely from a formatting issues. 


You could use DSA and designate and landing page URL's to use. You can do this for more control. 


Kind Regards,
