Here is my problem:
example.com/images folder and subfolders contain all of my images for
example.com site and sub pages.
Google is indexing those directories locations as URLs. For example.
All are indexed by Google. I understand they are generated by apache but they are not intended to be URLs for humans.
I don't have .htaccess control as we are on Yahoo web hosting (I know). I can't use robot.txt to block use the entire directories as that will block the actual image assets.
Anyone have a smart workaround for me? Should I create
/images/index.html and redirect it to the homepage? I hate to create a bunch of empty useless pages. I submitted to Google Webmaster URL removals but I am afraid someone else is linking to these directories and it will just cause it to get indexed again.
In the meantime, google mobility usability is giving me a low grade. People are having access to all of my image assets (well at least easier access to them).
