Why does Google index pages such as - af1765d3c277c54a93ae680bd348bba0_cropped_optimized ... on google??

When I click on it- it takes me to a landing page with an image and a completely random page that I did not create to my website.... The image is one that I input on a post but it comes up on its own and separate somewhere on my website?

What do you make of this and how to stop from happening in the future as the last thing I want is many random pages occurring in my list of posts in Google?? Many thanks. X

I don't quite understand your situation here friend. Are you telling us that the image you have on your website has it's own URL which is completely different from your blog post?

yes - if you click on this https://wholeearthgoodness.com/af1765d3c277c54a93ae680bd348bba0_cropped_optimized/

it is an image from my website - separate in google's indexing - what do you think?

If that image doesn't look like it was there by mistake. When I hover my mouse over it, it still has your website name. If you don't want it there, see if you can delete it. Let me know what happens. All the best!

I have to agree with Candy, I don’t know how it works either. I hope you get an answer soon.

I don't really how it works but when I open a post on my site then click on the image i'm able to open that image as though it's a linked post.

I know I don't have links on them though and the only thing that shows up on the page is the pic. And yes the URL looks like that.

Yes that happens through Google when you search for my website and wondering if this is normal??

Why would pages as these gets indexed as it looks unprofessional as you find it through Google?

I don't really think it appears when you do searches. At least I am able to see all of my pages that appear in the search engines and these don't.

Are you actually seeing yours in searches?
