  • d00d, WordPress automatically hides /wp-includes/, /wp-admin/, and other areas from robots. This isn’t a problem – you don’t want people there.

    The challenge is that the plugin is creating many links to the hidden area automatically.

    For every single blog, flare plugin has created a link to the admin area of our website and it misleads search engines.

    The link that I have placed is the Google result of all fake links.

    @coldad: how did you come by this? I’ve tried site:mywebsite but can’t find anything like yours

    am also a flare user myself

    Seems coldad is correct.
    Looks like the plugin is linking to wp-admin in javascript, which Google does parse, in loading the flare counts.

    Found this in the source of his site and mine.

    <script type="text/javascript">
      var __flare_count_url = "";

    I added Noindex: /wp-admin/ to my robots.txt.
    That should keep those pages out of the search results.
