  • Resolved robertvdijk


    I’ve made a setup with my site and installed the plug-in. Now I’ve a error in Google Search Console. It is saying:

    shop/pro-ab-mat 403 29-3-18
    shop/wrist-wraps-pro/ 403 29-3-18

    These links forward to a extern webshop. How can these errors been fixed? The links are now setted as 302 links.

  • Hi @robertvdijk

    This is just a false alarm, you see we are blocking bots on indexing/crawling ThirstyAffiliate links coz this is a bad SEO practice

    Its bad coz these types of links are categorized under “promotional links”, so if you let google index them and google will know they are promotional links, there is a tendency it will affect your ranking in terms of SEO.

    That is why on your console report, it says 403 coz it is blocking bots from indexing the ThirstyAffiliate links.

    But you can ignore these as these are just false alarms, ThirstyAffiliate links should work ok with no issues.

    I hope this helps

    Let me know if you have further questions
