Previously, my posts were indexed in the top 10 within minutes of being published. A week ago, I decided not to index categories and tags. I stopped including categories and tags in sitemaps. This does not affect previously ranked pages. However, my newly published post no longer appears in search results after that. If I search for a specific keyword of my new post, the post appears under a few categories and on my website’s homepage, but it does not appear as a dedicated post Any solutions?

Great question I was told to NOT index categories to avoid duplication of content. I wish I could get a clear answer as to allow indexing of categories or not, seems I may have the same situation as you since I turned off indexing of categories as well.
