[Plugin: Google Analytics for WordPress] Outbound link 404 errors (3 posts)

    In my 404 logs, I'm noticing URLs structured like this -- with outbound links (that visitors are apparently clicking on):

    Any idea what might be causing these types of 404 errors?

    I'm not sure this is the same issue you're having. I see similar errors in my GA reports regarding links I have set up with trackEvent using the Category/Action/Label syntax. The "label" portion can be text to help you distinguish the tracked item, it might be a portion of the item's url, the filename, a song name (if the item is a song), what have you. In my case, that label is showing up as not found in Webmaster Tools. I'm just ignoring these when Webmaster Tools reports these as not found.
