    Hi,
    A couple of days ago I installed Webmaster's tool on my website. I checked for the updates today and was surprised to see too many 404 (not found) pages. Almost all urls have got contact.php at the end. Please have a look:
    http://www.successstories.co.in/abigail-adams/contact.php
    http://www.successstories.co.in/good-to-great/contact.php
    http://www.successstories.co.in/honda-odyssey/contact.php
    http://www.successstories.co.in/oprah-winfrey/contact.php

    I checked for myself but am unable to trace and fix the error.

    I'll appreciate your hint/suggestion
    Sincerely,
    Alex

  2. If Webmaster Tools doesn't show the page where it's finding this link, try running your site through a dead-link checker to see if you can trace down the source.

    Here's an online one: http://validator.w3.org/checklink

    If can run PC software, Xenu Link Checker is a good standalone app: http://home.snafu.de/tilman/xenulink.html

    Hi Zoonini!

    I did not take the error seriously and now it seems my website is going to suffer :-(

    Please have a look at the following image. The concerning part is that every new post is resulting into and additional "contact.php" and is a Crawl Error.

    Please help me out before it gets penalized by Google :-(

    Do you use custom permalink structure? If yes, try to revert it back to default and save. Then get it back to your custom structure again. See if that could fix your problem.
