    website: ahac.ie

    wordpress version: 3.4.1
    mapsmarker version: v2.8.2

    hi my site is fine but if i google search "ahac.ie" the site is returned BUT with several useless sitelinks all saying e.g.

    ahac.ie/wp/wp-content/plugins/leaflet-maps.../leaflet-wikitude.php?...... powered by http://www.mapsmarker.com http://www.mapsmarker.com http://ahac.ie/ wp/wp-content/plugins/leaflet-maps-marker/inc/img/wikitude-logo-96x96.png ...

    is there some way o can turn this wikitude off?

    many thanks

    Try adding the file to your robots.txt and/or use Google webmaster Tools for this

    thanks for the fast reply
    i'm not sure what you mean by 'add file' to robots.txt

    what i'm trying to achieve is to stop these irrelevant site links appearing as search results for ahac.ie . if someone clicks on these links it just returns a page such as http://ahac.ie/wp/wp-content/plugins/leaflet-maps-marker/leaflet-wikitude.php?marker=15 which is mumbo jumbo as far as a user is concerned.

    they all seem to mention "wikitude API". (im afraid i don't know what this is)
    i'm wondering if there is some way i can prevent references to this wikitude by changing either the layer or the marker

    thanks again

    Hi Sean,
    I understand your issue - will check if there is a way to include that in one of the next releases. In the mean time please look at Google Webmaster Tool on how you can exclude certain pages from appearing in search results

    Hi again,

    In the next version I will add a "nofollow"-attribute to wikitude links as they are mainly meant for registering the api endpoint at wikitude.me. For the pro version I will add another link for Wikitude which allows user to directly start the augmented reality world, which makes more sense again.
