This page lists tracking categories which are automatically populated by the MediaWiki software. Their names can be changed by altering the relevant system messages in the MediaWiki namespace.

Tracking category Message name Category inclusion criteria
Indexed pagesindex-categoryThe page has a __INDEX__ on it (and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed), and hence is indexed by robots where it normally wouldn't be.
Noindexed pagesnoindex-categoryThe page is not indexed by robots because it has the magic word __NOINDEX__ on it and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed.
Pages using duplicate arguments in template callsduplicate-args-categoryThe page contains template calls that use duplicates of arguments, such as {{foo|bar=1|bar=2}} or {{foo|bar|1=baz}}.
Pages with too many expensive parser function callsexpensive-parserfunction-categoryThe page uses too many expensive parser functions (like #ifexist). See Manual:$wgExpensiveParserFunctionLimit.
Pages containing omitted template argumentspost-expand-template-argument-categoryThe page is bigger than $wgMaxArticleSize after expanding a template argument (something in triple braces, like {{{Foo}}}).
Pages where template include size is exceededpost-expand-template-inclusion-categoryThe page size is bigger than $wgMaxArticleSize after expanding all the templates, so some templates were not expanded.
