SEO Tip for Fast Secure Contact Form

SEO Tip for Fast Secure Contact Form:

Problem:
There are some links used only for the CAPTCHA that could  potentially get indexed by search engine spiders like Googlebot, MSNbot,  etc.  The links are for the “CAPTCHA Audio” and the “CAPTCHA Refresh”.  There is no need to have these CAPTCHA links indexed by a search engine. In version 2.8.2, I added rel=”nofollow” to the links so search engines will avoid indexing them. If you have been using the contact form plugin previous to version 2.8.2, some sites may already have some links indexed.
Solution:
It is recommended to add this to your web site robots.txt:
User-agent: *
Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/si-contact-form/captcha-secureimage/

Note: It may take some time (few days to weeks)for the indexed links to go away from the search results, this is normal.
