I have a small wordpress website (11 posts). Earlier today I thought I'd do a Google search and make sure everything is indexed properly. So I did the search to filter out only posts from my website, like this: site:mywebsite.com In the results I came across a lot of posts which are like duplicates of my original posts, and these posts contain only an image. I don't like this because if someone lands on one of these posts they will only see the image, not the post (content) of where the image is supposed to be. Plus it could be a duplicate content issue, because apart from having the same picture on more than one different posts, these posts are just an image, so there's no content there, so it looks bad. And these attachment pages have the same URL as the original post (the one with the content) plus an additional part which is the picture's ALT tag maybe, or the picture's name, like this: Original post: mywebsite.com/this-is-the-post-url Attachment page: mywebsite.com/this-is-the-post-url/this-is-the-extra I don't even understand why Wordpress does this, with Blogger I never had such an issue... So I read about a plugin which makes every attachment page redirect to the post where the image was originally uploaded to, I think that's what this plugin does... And I also read about Yoast having the same option, to redirect the attachment pages to the original posts. Then I read about making the attachment pages noindex. Then I read about hosting your images on a sub-domain... So now I'm confused, what to do? If I make all the attachment pages "noindex", then those pictures stop being indexed and as a result stop bringing me traffic from image search engines? Do I redirect attachment pages to their original posts by using a plugin? But that will still leave my "duplicate" attachment pages available for indexing, so that may resolve the issue of any website's visitor landing on an attachment page, but it still doesn't resolve the issue of google (and other search engins) indexing those attachment pages as Duplicate posts, thus negatively affecting my SEO... What do you do on your websites about the attachment pages? Thanks.
