    How to prevent Google from indexing ?wordfence_lh urls? They are correctly blocked in robots.txt, but since they return header 200 and an empty page, they get indexed anyway. Here’s a screenshot https://i.imgur.com/6BIcdw9.png.
    Shouldn’t these pages redirect to something like homepage, return 403/503 or at least contain meta noindex?

  • Hi bigneno,
    This is a query string that helps in detecting human visits to your website before getting them logged in the Live Traffic feed, normally, this query string shouldn’t be crawled by search engines, using Google Search Console you can check (Crawl > URL Parameters) to see if they are excluded or not. (you can manually add these parameters there). You may also consider asking Google to re-crawl your website after that.

    Thanks.
