since yesterday the amount of indexed pages jumped from 20k to 100k with the site: query. I hacked around a little and found that tons of pages got indexed where the following pattern occurs:
the page itself is noindex, follow and it has a canonical-url that points to a page that is index,follow.
Can it be that Google attempts to index pages too, that point (via canonical) to an indexed page?
The situation at hand are listing pages on an ecommerce site, where we've indexed the default sorting and have put the other sortings on noindex + canonical to the default sorting.
Anyone else seeing this issue?
