Support » Plugin: Flare » Google indexes strange pages created by Flare

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the work you’ve done on this plugin.

    I am having a small issue: Google indexes weird dynamic pages:


    with the following description:
    A description for this result is not available because of this site’s robots.txt

    I am using W3Total Cache if that is relevant.

    Does anyone have an idea about this issue, I would be thankful

  • Hello – I wonder if you were ever able to track this down. I’ve removed the plugin from my WordPress site, but Google keeps indexing. Any help is appreciated.

    No; I ran into it again ๐Ÿ™ today. Maybe we could figure this out together.

    I am trying my best now ๐Ÿ™‚ I will update if you are interested; also, if you want we can have a chat because it seems that we are the only 2 with this problem :D.

    This is so frustrating. Supposedly those soft 404 errors don’t hurt your traffic, but I’m not so sure that’s true. I’m using WP Super Cache, and I’ve deleted the cache, but no luck yesterday I had 18 errors, and today another 20. I saw another unanswered post, but that was it.

    I found this redirect link

    I might give this a try.

    I’m having the exact same problem and my traffic has taken a major hit.

    I’ve deleted the plugin and marked the errors in WMT as “solved”, the next day the traffic came back. A few days later the errors keep coming in and the traffic dropped again.

    I’m also using W3Total Cache btw…

    I found this redirect link

    I’ve seen this, but none of the solutions seem to work. I’ve posted the problem myself, but haven’t got an answer yet.

    If you run a Google search on “flare_get_counts” you see that many sites are indexed and therefore many have that problem, but I haven’t found a solution anywhere.

    Any new ideas anybody?

    I found a solution to this problem.

    I’ve put this is my .htaccess and all the URLs with “flare_get_counts” in it will be redirected to the homepage.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} action=flare_get_counts&url=.+
    RewriteRule wp-admin/admin-ajax.php /? [R=301,L]

    This is of course a work-around, as the code of this crappy plugin is still present all over the database and needs to be removed.

    Please tell me if it worked for you!
