    I have been dealing with a weird issue...
    I checked my webmaster tool yesterday and was shocked to find over 500 404 Crawl Error.
    Almost every post is resulting into additional contact.php, for example:
    http://www.successstories.co.in/tag/steve-jobs-the-life-journey/ (The Original Page) and

    http://www.successstories.co.in/tag/steve-jobs-the-life-journey/contact.php (the 404 Crawl Error)

    The same has been repeated with all of the pages/posts. What's wrong with my website. Somebody told me that my website will be penalized by Google.

    You can see the screenshot HERE
    How to fix it. I will be grateful for your help.

  2. See the 'linked from' link on the right? Where are these 404s coming from?

  3. Oh. Never mind, the problem (if you view source on your page, you'll see this) is bad HTML.

    <li class="last"><a href="contact.php">LOG IN<br /><span>join our network</span></a></li>

    That should be fixed to whatever the real login URL is.

    I did not get your hint, sorry!

    It seems that contact.php is getting attached to every post/page and resulting into 404 error...

    Did you mean to say that in place of "contact.php" I should be using http://www.successstories.co.in/wp-admin/?

    And how to know if the issue has been fixed?
    Sorry, if my questions are annoying!

  7. How did you make that menu?

    The MENU that has the link to "LOG IN" is what's causing this. it has a bad link. You need to fix it. However you made it, go in and edit it to what the correct login link/contact link should be. I don't know what it is, it's your site.
