Hello All,

I am working on a WordPress site. I have faced alot of attachment URLs issue which cause by adding media files.

So i have installed plugin for 301 redirection which is working good. My question is should i have to add no index tag in all my attachment URLs from wordpress admin? or just plugin for 301 redirection is fine enough.

Please answer.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

The 301 should take care of it just fine. Noindex just tells the bots not to index it but if you've got a 301 on the resource then they'll never get to it anyhow and they aren't going to index it.
