    How I can add this attribute to the links of the apps so I wouldn't have access errors in my google webmaster tools?

    Thanks you

    Yeah, would be nice to get some SEO-Advice for this Plugin.

    I dont think nofollow will resolve your problems. Got some access denied error from google here too. What kind of errors do u have?

    Should we block the Plugin-Cache with robots.txt`?

    The Affiliate-Links do have the nofollow attribute.
    And as I can see, thats just on the button, not on the image #bug.

    If you need them for the Devoloper link, you can add this around line 262 where the output HTML is build.

    This is the output-section from line 261 to 267 with nofollw:

    $output .= '<span class="apps">'.$spanOverlay;
    $output .= '<a class="Bild" href="'.$AffLink.'" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">';
    $output .= '<img class="Image" align="left" src="'.$cacheimageurl.'" alt="'.$trackName.' (AppStore Link) " /></a> ';
    $output .= '<span class="Titel">'.$trackName.'</span><br /> ';
    $output .= '<span class="Hersteller">'.$langDeveloper.' </span> <a href="'.$sellerUrl.'" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">'.$sellerName.'</a><br /> ';
    $output .= '<div><span class="Freigabe">'.$langAgeRating.' </span>'.$contentAdvisoryRating.$ratingHTML.'</div> ';
    $output .= '<span class="Preis">'.$langPrice.' </span>'.$formattedPrice.' ';

    I am getting a bunch of 200+ Crawling Errors from Google with this URL. It says "403" to those links, but the App-Links are working:


    Much worser: i get many many "not selected" URLs vom Google (about 5000 an rising with every new link!) also regarding to the Plugin.

    Any Ideas?

    I'm having like lots of denied access errors for the plugin.

    I don't know how to fix them. I supose that with the nofollow attribute will fix them, but I don't really know.

    I will try it with the solution of Ste-bi

    thanks for your support

    Nah, mroiz, i think you are wrong. I have also the denied access errors for the plugin since monday. But i do not think that the cause from the developers links within the plugin.

    I will deactivte those links now. Please tell the community if the developers-solution works.

    I think the problem has end.
    You have to disallow the access to google to the plugin directory. You have to add to your sitemap file

    Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/appstore/

    and the problem will dissapear, the thing now is if that movement will hurt the SEO of your web site...for now i´m not seen anything...but this things are not fast, so who nows...
