Permalinks problem - Google crawls as 404 Error (14 posts)

    For some reason, both SEOmoz and Google crawls add /index.html to my permalinks and therefore produce a host of 404 not found errors, although the real permalinks (pages) are indexed and work properyl.

    How do I go about this?

    Thanks!

    Your sitemap looks fine. Did you specify a sitemap in Google webmaster tools?

    Yes of course all the sitemaps are there, my site actully ranks very high in the competitive market, so I was quite surprised to see this.

    So where are you seeing this wrong crawling? In Google webmaster tools or in search results?

    anybody can help me?
    Is there any problem with Apache server that treats permalinks as directories?

    Google webmasters screenshot - http://www.bukhlawfirm.com/screen_seomoz.png

    As you see, both crawlers see the permalinks not only as sirect links, but also as subcategores thus adding /index.html and producing a host of 404 errors.

    The hosting company said there was no prob with Apache config.

    In Google Webmaster tools, if you click on the report of the broken link, from the Linked From tab you should get the link of the page which points to such link.

    Can you check?

    Google is correct.

    If you click on view source on your page, and you search for index.html you will find the following:

    <a href='index.html'>

    The index.html link in your source points to:
