Hi

We keep getting strange urls identified in Google webmaster tools. Here is an example:

/index.php?target=gift_certificates&mode=free_products&search_products=Y&page=159

They are often preceded by a string of categories first.

Search engines are being blocked from crawling any urls with parameters but still these keep appearing.

Does CS Cart (v3.0.4) use target?
How are these urls being crawled?
What is the mode=free_products?

Many thanks in advance

I posted the fix for the product picker and category picker issue. It appears as you have not applied said fix (and afaik CS-Cart have still not included it), Google has already crawled your site, so apply the fix and wait - or alternatively, apply the fix and request removal in Google WMT at your own risk. Personally I would apply the fix and wait for Google to resolve the problem over time. Installing the Canonical URL Addon will likely also help.

Grant, did you post the fix on this forum somewhere?
