    I am using Better Search, everything is ok it's a very goog plugin. thank you for this tool.

    But I notice that all results pages are indexed by Google. It's a problem with duplicate content.

    - I notice in visits bots details: http://xxxxxx.com/?s=xxxxxx%25252Bd%25255C%25255C%25255C%255C%255C%255C%2

    For all search. Google bots (visits ans crawl)scan hundred and hundred pages.

    I'm worried (Google panda..)

    Zepolo,

    This isn't a feature of the plugin to store any pages and I don't see a behaviour on my site.

    Where are you seeing this bot visit details?

    You can try disabling Better Search and see if this behaviour continues. Google is smart about duplicate content when scanning through results.

    Additionally, Better Search usually display just excerpts on the results page, so you won't end up with duplicate content.

    Thank you.

    I find this: How to limit the Duplicate Content ?
    "YOUR own fight against duplicate content ..."

    No index on the results of research

    WordPress a search result looks like this: / xxxxx.com /? S = xxxxx.

    You can remove the indexing of these search results by placing the following code in your <head> in the header.php file:
    <? php if ((is_search ()) | | (is_tag ())) {?>
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/>
    <? php} else {?>
    <meta name="robots" content="index, follow"/>
    <? php}?>

    zepolo, that's the ideal way to block this.
