Awstats log full of null 404 items (2 posts)

    I'm trying to reduce errors and unfound pages on my site, and I notice a lot of lines in my awstats 404 log like

    /null 17132 http://www.digitaltoast.co.uk/uk-debt-information-line-phone-call-recorded
    /2008/null 33 http://www.digitaltoast.co.uk/2008/07

    The first "column" is what it can't find.
    The number is the amount of times the missing item (/null) was called.
    The last thing is the referring page.

    I just don't see what is causing this - these /null/ things are so filling my logs, without importing it into excel and remove all these, it's difficult to find what I'm looking for!

    Help would be appreciated - is this a WordPress or a theme issue?

    It could be bad bot (web robot) activity. Try something like the Bad Behavior plugin to reduce this.
