I just installed Sitemap Creator and run a test. I have a newly developed site using PhalconPHP framework. The issue that I need assistance with is how to prevent bots from creating links to pages that do not exist? Noting this site has never been crawled by anyone but me.
i.e. The log file reports a link to
/buy-homes/1896.00 Sq Ft
At no time anywhere in the script is there a reference to such a page. The only time this is mentioned is within a
div or a text reference for a google map information window pop-up as text.
Can someone help me understand how crawler bots create links from that which does not exist? How can I prevent this from happening? I would rather not have 1000+ 404 pages listed with Google.
