    I have registered an expired domain and installed Wordpress on it.
    But some unwanted url's are indexed with some affliate url's. But they are not on Wordpress posts or pages. WHere can I find those pages ?

    All the data of pages, posts and settings is in your database. You can send me the URL I can take a look.

    As a wordpress developer, chances are that the spam you are receiving is from the blog page. This page is automatically installed as Wordpress is a blogging platform. I 100% agree with installing wordfence as it alerts you to any messages or attempted sign ins to your site and even provides the IP address of the attacker. You can then block the users IP address from your site completely. I have found that by shutting down the blog comments, it eliminates 90% of the spam you would receive.

    Do you mean results are showing in serps?
    If will be indexed pages from prior to the Domain expiring.
    What happens when you click on the links? Do you get a 404?
    If yes then you can just redirect all 404's to the homepage or access WMT and remove the pages there.

    Thanks for your reply. They are not redirecting to 404. They are live pages with huge number of casino affliate links

    I have installed a free theme from Wordpress. I have scanned my site with Wordfence and it says "Congratulations! No security problems were detected by Wordfence. "

    Do the pages exist on your website? Check indexed pages on google and check your database.

    Check your .htaccess file first. Then look for files with recent modification date. If there is no any suspicious code or files, check site folders with AI-bolit scanner (https://www.revisium.com/aibo/).
