    Hi guys,

    I recently checked by SERPs and found that Google had indexed my sites with "replytocomment" multiple times. How can I set them to noindex?

    You can do this in your .htaccess file.. There are numerous tutorials on this file on the web just do a quick search..

    Hope that helps

    If you use Wordpress, install Wordpress SEO. Go to Wordpress SEO>Permalinks and check Remove the ?replytocom variables.

    u will have to leave them as noindex,follow so g00gle can follow them and remove them (in their own time), if u just block them they wont get removed with any urgency
