"Gallery" Images being indexed in Google as pages? (3 posts)

    I am currently using a premium WordPress theme and the developers could not answer my question so I am hoping someone here can. For some reason, my images are being crawled in Google as pages of their own. I have never set up a gallery and only want my images showing on the pages that I put them on. They are appearing like this: mywebsite.com/?attachment_id=240. When I go to any of them I find a whole gallery page of all the images on the site which I cant seem to find in the admin area.

    How can I prevent this from happening as I do not want Google crawling each image as a page like this. Thanks in advance.

    Can you post a link to an image that you don't want to get indexed and the link of the page where it appears?

    Here is an example.


    You can see all of the images below it that also have their own pages. I did not set up any of this and I want it all gone. This can't be good with Google's Panda updates.
