Google is picking up query strings with Amazon Pay in Search console. In my case there are over a thousand listed under “Crawled – currently not indexed” . They look like this:
The only difference between the many hundreds of links is the number, so /page/904?s…, /page/97?s…, etc
I stopped using Amazon Pay and deleted the plugin with all the directories and files over two years ago but these links are still crawled by Google as late as yesterday.
In trying to figure this out I found this link somewhere: https://my-website-name/wc-api/wc_gateway_amazon_payments_advanced.
This link returns -1 when clicked, not a 404 as I would expect because there is no /wc-api/ that I can see in my website structure. There is also no /page/ in my website structure that I can see. I have no idea where these urls are coming from.
I would like to figure out what is causing Google to think these pages exist and resolve the issue.
