Hi,

When you search for my site on Google using site:mydomain.com, I see dozens of pages like mydomain.com/page/54 or mydomain.com/page/87. If I follow one of these links, it just goes to my home page. Any idea why this is happening?

If I can’t figure that out, can I block these using your Exclude Pages functionality? Should I put http://mydomain.com/page or just page or /page/ or…?

There is no Next Page link on the home page, but there is on category pages.

I already have archives set to no index.

Category pages are set to no index too. I wouldn’t know how to do this with robots.txt or the redirection plugin, and certainly not .htaccess. I do use the redirection plugin though. Do you know how I could structure the source URL to account for all these pages?

I’m also going to try and figure out how the theme is causing this.

So you think it’s safe to use the redirection plugin to redirect mydomain.com/page/(.*) to mydomain.com? And it won’t redirect mydomain.com/category-name/page/2 or “pages” without the word “page” in the URL?

Hey, I really appreciate the help. And sorry about the gender change earlier. :-) I used my wife’s paypal address to register for support and then decided I should change the user profile!

Okay, this is weird. From the page source for one of these pages…

Why is the canonical picking up that page/33?

Okay, lets try that again. When I view source, under the All in One SEO section for http://gpstracklog.com/page/33/ I see
link rel=”canonical” href=”http://gpstracklog.com/page/33/”

Yep, support only. It just surprised me, but yeah, I guess it shouldn’t have.

The theme and home page have no next page link. I can’t figure out where it’s coming from.

Thanks Peter. I will use that as a backup plan. I’m in the middle of a web host move and am waiting to wrap that up to implement.

Great support BTW.

Looks like the Redirection plugin method works! Thanks again!

Oops, turns out it’s redirecting pages like this http://gpstracklog.com/categor…..gps/page/2 to the first page for that category… http://gpstracklog.com/categor…..n-auto-gps.

Do you have a suggested change to the regex that you can share?
