I’ve released Better Search v1.3.4 today. The biggest addition which has long been pending is the addition of a meta tag that will allow you to set the search results page to stop being indexed. Enabled by default, you can choose to disable the meta tag if needed.
This should be definitely better for SEO and recommended by Google. Setting the meta tag should eventually stop Google and other search engines from unnecessarily indexing the search results pages.
This plugin also adds support for Rocket Loader and fixes some minor bugs in the heatmap. I’ve also added a brand new header image for the plugin listed in the WordPress.org directory. How does it look?
As usual, if you’re looking for support, please create a new post in the WordPress.org support forum.
