(2) Often times these dynamically created queries produce lots of blank pages. Identify and no index these.
(3) Look in WMT to identify pages that have been penalized. I have found many to be these datafeed pages. I looked at pages prePanda and postPanda.
I have some dynamic PHP pages. These pages help track outgoing links, and are empty otherwise, but google has indexed hundreds of them. Will these empty pages hurt, and if so, how can you noindex them? And should you or will that hurt your site more? I know that you cannot noindex a php script (I have tried), and I am not sure its wise to block a directory where you have the link www.mysite.com/getlink?s=244
as google may not like that either. Any suggestions on the best way to handle dynamic PHP scripts?
Where in WMT can you see penalized pages? I see a section that says pages blocked by robots.txt. Does google frown on pages blocked by robots.txt? It says on one of my sites that over 800 pages are blocked which is incorrect, as no pages are blocked currently. Maybe I should see if they can correct this.
