  • Whatever the plugin you’re using that’s creating the product filtering. All the classes are “gsf-” if that helps? Not sure if it’s a part of the theme you’re using or a plugin, but it’s creating like pre-made search results pages for each of the filter options.

    Is it actually making “Pages”, in your WP admin Pages? Or are these being indexed by Google? What exactly is the issue?

    Indexed by Google and the SEO states it is hurting my ranking, so I am trying to find what created them so I can delete them as they are not being used.

    Those pages are the results of the filter plugin you’re using. They are being used when someone uses the filters on your product offering.

    Ask the plugin’s developers whether such pages can be no-indexed.

    Does GSF ring a bell when you look at your list of plugins?

    @sterndata Thanks for the help it did point me in the right direction.

    I found the filter section in the themes, and I disabled the filter from the website. But all of the URLs are still showing up in the SEO scan and it states these unused urls are hurting my overall SEO ranking. How can these unused URLs be removed, I tried using the remove old slugs plugin and it did not find them as a slug.

    They are not slugs. They are parameters used to filter your products. You need to remove all traces of the filter plugin. However, as I said, you just need to find out how to no-index the view. As I noted, you need to talk to the developers of FacetWP for support on this.
