Google No Longer Indexing my Website

I recently added my website to the CF Free plan. I have this rule with a managed challenge and also turned off Bot Fight Mode:

(not ip.geoip.country in {“US” “CA”} and not cf.client.bot)

All the rest are default settings.

My business is in the US and has been established on Google for 15 years.

Google has removed my website from my business page since it can not index it. What do I need to do to correct this?

Thank you in advance!

Also for more clarification, this is the error that Google is showing:
Page cannot be indexed: Blocked due to access is forbidden (403)

The website is https://bigskyinternetdesign.com.

Sorry for these issues, I suspect you need to add a rule that allows the bot to index your page, details here, FAQ · Cloudflare Web Application Firewall (WAF) docs. Look for the Rule that excludes known bots that Cloudflare validates section.

Thank you very much for your reply!

I had thought that the ''and not cf.client.bot" part of that rule would allow that. I must not understand the logic. How would you suggest I write the rules or should I separate them?

Again, thank you,
Tom

Turns out that ModSecurity on the server was blocking it. It was not Cloudflare at all. The 403 error was the key to look at the server.
