    Hello,
    I've been getting 450 new google crawl errors on my blog
    Google crawls these weird links with 13 digits behind the working original URL, here's an example;

    Original working URL
    http://thatfix.com/2012/05/the-neighbourhood-sweater-weather/

    Google crawls and lists the following URL and URLs alike as an error
    http://thatfix.com/2012/05/the-neighbourhood-sweater-weather/1346773869000/1347444092000

    More examples:

    I really don't know what's going on, I've been googling for a few hours now without success
    Help and suggestions are appreciated, thank you!

    Since when are you facing this problem? Which new plugin did you install recently?

    ever since the beginning of this month,
    the last 2 plugins i've installed are "Cudazi Scroll to Top" and "Infinite Scroll"

    also,
    it's strange that I'm able to access the post by going to the following URL
    http://thatfix.com/2012/05/the-neighbourhood-sweater-weather/1346773869000/

    Is this normal? What are the digits after the official permalink?
    but the one that gets listed as an error doesnt work

    No, it is not normal. The numbers, I guess, are being added by some plugin. Can you deactivate all plugins and see if the link still works (not much hope though).

    thank you, but no success
    tried disabling all my plugins, I was still able to access the posts with the weird digit link

    Well, can you make a new sitemap and see if the weird links (with digits) appear in that? I made your sitemap at xml-sitemaps.com and the 500 links (limit in their free service) does not contain any such weird links. It is an indication that they are actually not there.

    this error will not effect your seo if these files are not created by you .

    it won't?
    but every post has 2 links to get to it now
    doesnt it mean that google penalizes you for double content

    but what i find weird is, how does google crawl following URL and URLs alike;

    http://thatfix.com/2012/05/the-neighbourhood-sweater-weather/1346773869000/

    links with these 13 digits behind the original URL are not included in my sitemap and there is no link present on the original posts that links to these weird links...

    I'm having the exact same problem. It must be kind of new because you're the first person other than me that I've seen with it.

    Thanks to everyone for the help so far!

    Here is a link from Google that explains the issue.
    https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/webmasters/zvez-eib0Ao/lf08lf_K8AkJ

    I quote the official Google reply:

    Thanks for the examples, everyone! It does look like we're picking up something funny via JavaScript there. We're looking into what can be done in this particular case. In the meantime, keep in mind that 404 errors of URLs that are invalid (like these appear to be) are not something that would affect your site's indexing or ranking, so while I understand that they may be confusing (and I'm sorry for the number of URLs here), it's not something that you'd need to take action on.

    Thanks krishna for searching on google forum. I was aware of this fact because matts have told this fact many times in his videos that 404 error stays fro some time in GWT and than google remove it over a period of time.
    The reason of showing 404 error is that google want to inform you that some of your website pages are not working so please make them available for others. it may be the reason some one made changes on server which causes this error for fews pages google don't want to remove those pages instantly from google search results so it keep those pages(404) for certain time.
    This is not known.

    I'm having 980 crawl errors and cant find the cause. Maybe it's coming from Google AJAX Translation plugin? This plugin might tell google that it can create new pages, translations of all those posts. Although these pages are not yet there, they are potentially there in a stand-by position. Google robots see this and report there should be pages but we can't find them. Any suggestion?

    Great to see this post. I have had the same problem in GWT which has been confusing me. Thanks for the help!

    I also have a problem where lots of working original URLs have '/feed/' appended after them. Eg - http://therealasset.co.uk/is-silver-about-to-shine/feed/

    My problems started in Sept Oct this year. So far I cannot identify a guilty plug in.

    Has anyone else had this? Any tips/advice?

    I came upon posts that say google robots can't deal with relative urls.
    Wordpress produces relative urls like ../about.html | ../experts/ | etc. Google robots figure these are broken links and reports crawl error.
    So this is a problem of google and they also say one hasnt to worry about crawl errors (http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.co.at/2011/05/do-404s-hurt-my-site.html). On the other hand it is surely an issue what has to be solved. Either via a wordpress plugin or by google and all other search engines.
