    My sites were hit by G, then i noticed that google indexed all my tags with description, so for site with 40 pages i have 800 indexed pages. How do i fix that asap in wordpress?
    I spent now 2 hours googling about that, found "robots meta" plugin, but it adds "no follow" only. I tried couple of plugins but none of them can add no index to tags.
    Please help

    If i search site:domain.com, all the pages are full with dupes from /search/ and indexed tags. Since wp-robot did that to me i saw huge drop. I think its there. Maybe i didn't explain myself right, not the meta tags, those post tags that you add while posting.
    p.s. So google shows in search shitloads of "domain.com/tag/blabla" and "domain.com/search/blabla"

    So any help?

    If you got penalty its not because of that i think. Google wont consider tags as a duplicate content. That I know for sure. Check what else you did to get the penalty

    I don't think its normal that site with 40 actual pages has 1k indexed pages. My other sites, with "normal" search results didn't get this penalty. And i did same blackhat to both wp-robot and non-wprobot

    Idk why, but i can't get no-index for tags through any plugin. No-follow works, noindex is not working on tags not in old posts, not in new posts.
