GP’s code is so basic and simple – we don’t do any modifying of anything fancy like the wp-login.php page – not sure how GP doesn’t be causing any of this. I would also assume it would be happening to more people if it was GP related.
The redirect_to part of the URL is basic WordPress functionality – it definitely seems as if Google has decided to crawl pages hidden behind wp-login.php, or they’re simply following any links you have on your pages that go there.
a) All a rel=”nofollow” tag to all links pointing to wp-login.php – this will tell Google to ignore the links.
b) Add the code you mentioned above to your robots.txt file – there’s no need for Google to ever reach wp-login.php, so if it keeps trying, it’s better to just block it entirely.
Let me know if either of the above helps or not 🙂
