Google Webmaster Crawl Errors - Adding /URL (14 posts)

    Google Webmaster Tools is listing thousands of crawl errors. These are all URLs which apparently have the ending /URL but which don't exist.

    Examples:
    page/58/URL
    events/2008-10/URL
    2012/09/26/oracle-cloud-infrastructure-business/URL
    etc.

    They all end in /URL, but obviously these URLs are not supposed to exist. I am unsure if a plugin or whatsoever is causing that.

    Not sure if anyone has seen something like that before and can help. Much appreciated!

    this is normal for GWT I also have similar errors for my websites. after some time google will delete these urls from your GWT dashboard. there is video on GoogleWebmaster channel on youtube it gives hint by google crawler shows these urls which is not part of website. I don't remember link but you get help on youtube channel.

    The website is http://cloudtimes.org/.

    It doesn't seem that GWT is deleting them from the website - I've had them for too long. The link to the YouTube video would be helpful - due to its nature it's difficult to search for this error.

    I do not find any links as described by you in your site. Can you post one such link?

    actually they are only in GWT errors log. on website you will not find anything.

    Here is an example:

    http://cloudtimes.org/2012/09/27/software-security-hosting-stocks-upswing/URL

    According to GWT it is linked from:

    http://cloudtimes.org/2012/09/27/software-security-hosting-stocks-upswing/

    and another site - probably spam (you need to remove the spaces)

    http://ww w.johnvander vuurst. nl/click.php?operation=click&url=http%3A%2F%2F cloudtimes.org%2F2012%2F09%2F27%2Fsoftware-security-hosting-stocks-upswing%2F

    Maybe this spam site is the problem?

    I currently have about 6000 of these errors. Always the same concept - adding the letters /URL to otherwise correct URLs.

    You do not actually have a URL like:

    http://cloudtimes.org/2012/09/27/software-security-hosting-stocks-upswing/URL

    Where do you find the spam link?

    it is creation of google webmaster tool. don't worried about it. it takes months when GWT will remove it.

    I would add this to robots.txt and forget about it:
    Disallow /*/URL

    but it is not a url which on his website so no need to worry about it.
    @mtantow you can visit google webmaster forum there you will get best help. because it more related to google tool not to wordpress.

    Perhaps this post with a similar problem and an official reply from Google will help:
