  • Hi,
    I’m coming across a small issue with google webmaster and the creation of soft 404’s for searching on my site.
    When a search is carried out using the search button for a term not found http://www.aldridgedentists.co.uk//?s=Search+this+site…&x=6&y=10 Yoast creates the canonical below in the page source.

    <link rel=”canonical” href=”http://www.aldridgedentists.co.uk/search/Search+this+site…/” />

    Google does not like the link and is reporting it as a soft 404.

    Is there any way to stop yoast creating this for searches only?
