Hey guys. 

I did a Google search on one of my sites with All In One recently (www.musicfactoryproductions.com) and discovered that it seems to be indexing and displaying a bunch of page links to images on my site. See the attached screenshots. All the links to “STUDIO” pages. Those are just images on the homepage.

Do you have simple solution for removing these links from the pages that Google lists for this site? I suspect I have something checked in the plugin settings that shouldn’t be.

Thanks so much!

Mark

Btw, guys, I should add that I have unchecked the Media/Attachments box in the XML Sitemap settings for Post Types. Only Posts and Pages are checked. In addition, the only Post Types checked in my General Settings are Posts and Pages. However, I only made these changes recently, so perhaps Google needs time to update things??

Just want to make sure you have all the info. 🙂

Thanks again.

Mark

Also, this page appears in my search results, which isn’t even a page on my site. That is, I have no page by that name.

https://www.musicfactoryproductions.com/services-production/

Any thoughts about why that’s being returned in the results and how to omit it??

Thanks again!

Mark

Thanks Steve! Appreciate the response, especially during the holidays. Will give those suggestions a shot. 

Thanks again, and happy (almost) new year!

Hi again, Steve.

I tried using the removal tool and got this message:

The URL you want to remove is:

We think the web page you’re trying to remove hasn’t been removed by the site owner
Before Google can remove it from our search results, the site owner needs to take down or update the content.

Has the web page been updated or removed at source website?

 

I answered yes to that question, to which I received the following message:

 

The content is still live on the web.

Before Google can remove it from our search results, the site owner needs to take down or update the content.


 
The snippet and cache are outdated. We may remove the snippet and cache if Google’s copy of the page is out of date. This will only work for webpages. The site’s webmaster may receive a notice from Google that a changed content removal was sent for this URL. Learn more.
 
The entire page or image has been removed. Learn more.
We may not always detect content that has been removed. If you are certain the entire page or image is removed, you can let us know to help us improve this feature.

 

I answered that the entire page has been removed, though it was unclear after that if the request was actually submitted.

Guess I’ll just wait and see, but if you have any other suggestions please let me know, and thanks again!

Mark

Hi Mark,

Google will index anything it can crawl on your site, or has crawled in the past.  A good example of this is https://www.musicfactoryproductions.com/services-production/.  The is a valid attachment page and whilst you may not have submitted it to Google, they have found it and indexed it.  You can use All in One SEO Pack to set the NOINDEX meta tag on Media Attachment pages.  To do this go to All in One SEO > General Settings > Noindex Settings and check the box next to Media in the Default to NOINDEX setting.

You have to then wait until Google decides to remove those URLs from it’s index.  That could take days or it could be weeks, it’s entirely up to Google as to when they do this.  Or you can use the tool here to ask them to remove those URLs – https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removals  

I bought Pro to get rid of some Google Search Console Errors that I think originate with All in One SEO. Categories, for instance. But, with the images that are treated as pages, the link you provided says it will only work if you’ve removed the pages… So I don’t think that link is helpful.
