Why is my website appending a search query to every page? ?s=

Hello, I have a website at lilnipper.com and for some reason I keep getting “Blocked (No Follow Attribute)” on pages that are my pages, but not, because they all have a " ?s= " appeneded to the URL. Has anyone seen this? Our pages do not have a search query. We don’t really even leverage WP search on our website.

Thank you!

Where are you getting this?

<a aria-label="Search" href="?s=" rel="nofollow" data-avia-search-tooltip="
<form role="search" action="https://lilnipper.com/" id="searchform" method="get" class="">
 <div>
 <input type="submit" value="" id="searchsubmit" class="button avia-font-entypo-fontello" />
 <input type="text" id="s" name="s" value="" placeholder='Search' />
 </div>
</form>
" aria-hidden="false" data-av_icon="" data-av_iconfont="entypo-fontello"><span class="avia_hidden_link_text">Search</span></a>

I would guess it’s coming from your site search.

It’ll also be why the “Blocked” message appears - that search is marked nofollow, and whatever tool you’re using to view it is (correctly) aborting its search because it found a nofollow attribute on the link.
