WordPress Business Themes › Forums › Responsive Themes › Comparison Theme › Google indexed all affiliate cloaking links directly to web shops ???
I just found that google indexed all affiliate cloaking links like xxxxx/buy_link/ directly web shops, and not to my site?
It’s not good?
Please check attached screen-shot…
Any help here please?
All web site link is replaced with external links.
Has anyone the same problem?
I can’t believe that nobody react to this big problem, especially theme staff?
It’s not problem only with my website! I checked other websites which use comparison press theme, and same problem appears there, even demo theme from premium press.
Google will un-index our websites if the problem is not resolved soon!
This is may be because your ‘item scope’ setting are On, try turning it off.
Available under, theme settings –> content setup
Yes, itemscope was turned on. I turned it off now, and hope it will helps.
Thank you for your tips!
Item Scope may not be issue.
In my case I am using coupon theme and links like following are getting indexed,
I wanted second one to get indexed but not first one hence I have added following in my robot.txt file to stop search engine spiders from crawling links like first one,
Be careful while disallowing something in robot.txt, if you do it incorrectly correct URLs may not get indexed.
The Outgoing links are nofollowed so that shouldn’t be the issue.
In 8.4 and onwards the CBUTTON shortcode also has a missing div which causes the outgoing url to affect any content inside the ‘thumbnail’ container – If this wasn’t fixed in later versions This is probably the issue as it also affects the single post permalink.
Also make sure your the Title is not set to the outgoing link.
Do you have a suggestion how to disallow for example following link:
It’s maybe not problem with search engine, but I don’t want that there appears mass of cloaking links in search result for the users…
You may add following line in your robot.txt file (assuming 700734 number in your link is changing for every product).
BE CAREFUL: HOWEVER I will advise you to test this in google’s webmaster console before you add anything in your robot.txt file else IT MAY RESULT in Correct URLs also getting de-indexed.
Refer to following guide by google to test your robot.txt file
Hi Vivek and thank you for your help and suggestion.
I will try…
Anyone have a solution for this problem?
It’s very bad for SEO, and mass of links is blocked by google!
