    Hi,

    I have a lot of crawl errors google webmaster tools like this:

    /tag/%tag_name%/%category_name%

    If i put in your browser /tag/%tag_name%/, it works, but adding %category_name% i get 404 error. I don't why the url is like that or what is building it like that.

    Any idea?

    Hi,

    I never saw this kind of URL structure in WordPress...
    I know http://www.your-site-com/tag/tag-example
    or http://www.your-site-com/category/cat-example
    but not http://www.your-site-com/tag/tag-example/cat-example ! It doesn't make sense.
    That's perhaps you get 404 error !

    What's the behavior when you go to http://www.your-site-com/category/%category_name% ?

    It is weird because the behavior of my site is right, but Google Webmasters Tools shows me thousands of errors with that estructure:

    /tag/%tag_name%/%category_name%

    I donĀ“t know where it comes

    In Google Webmaster Tools, go to "URL Parameters" and look for a wrong parameter.
    Then, you can't remove it, but you will be able to modify it to allow the Google Crawlers to crawl or not the matching URL structure. There are many option for you.

    You should read this

    Thank you riversatile, but it doesn't help.

    I think it's a plugin, but to determine which is hard because it takes days to be indexed by google.

    I don't know what to do about that :(
