    That’s exactly what this plugin is made for. “Not removing the Attachment URL” is exactly what HTTP response code 404 means.

    “Removing the Attachment URL” would mean to use a redirect, which is HTTP response code 301.

    HTTP 404 means “this page does not exist”. A code 404 tells search engines to not index that page or, if already indexed, to remove it from the index.

    HTTP 301 means “this page still exists, but its URL has changed, please go to the new URL”. A code 301 tells search engines that the page exists and should be indexed or, if already indexed, to stay in the index.

    So if you do not want your Attachment Pages to appear in Google & Co you should use HTTP response code 404. That’s what this plugin is made for and should be used for.

    Regards,
    Peter
