Hello,

This may be a weird question but I thought I would pass it on to see if you've seen this issue.

We have your plugin installed on: https://www.perfectwavetravel.com/

We are currently experiencing server resource problems due to an increase in Googlebot traffic.

When I view our server access log I can see that the majority of the requests are trying to access queries related to currencies.

Here is an output of some of the records that are made within a few seconds:

I'm unsure of where or how the Googlebot is traversing through these links or how they're getting 200 status codes on the request, because these links don't exist.

 

Hoping you might be able to shed some light on this for me.

Thanks.
