 Good day!
In the Google console, I see a large number of pages of this kind:
https://---------/shop/korpusni-mebli/shafy/monaco-moas01-shafa-3d/amp/?_wb_bust=710349405
https://-------/shop/korpusni-mebli/shafy/libelle-lbls82-shafa-2d/amp/?_wb_bust=23706228
https://-------/shop/korpusni-mebli/tumby-rtv/cordoba-codf01-komod-rtv-2d1s/amp/?_wb_bust=60856995

They are blocked by the robots.txt file.

everyone has such a part
amp/?_wb_bust=

Please tell me what does this mean?

HI

They are URLs used to "bust" your browser cache or Google AMP cache, ie be sure that page actually reloads (from the server) instead of the browser just displaying the current page again. This is used for instance in forms like after adding to cart for instance where one needs to update the page but stay on the same page (when "Continue shopping" is selected).
The number after the URL is random. I'm not sure where you see in Search console but they won't cause any SEO issue as, like all AMP pages, they have a canonical pointing at your regular HTML page.

Best regards

"ie be sure that page actually reloads (from the server) instead of the browser just displaying the current page again. "

And how should it be? Should the page load from the server?
How to check it?

HI

Well yes, it loads from the server, that's why the _wb_bust=<random_number> is added to the current page URL. Without this, the browser would just stay on the same page.

How to check it?
Add something to the cart, click on "Continue shopping" and check that the "Mini cart" has been updated with your item.

What's the problem you're trying to solve?

Best regards

I am just scared of the large number of such pages in Google Console.
These pages are closed in robots.txt

Disallow: /*?*

But google sees them.  Approximately 1000 pages

Hi

where do they see them? again, they are all canonicalized to your regular pages so why do you worry about this?

Best regards
