    My permalinks are causing google page not found errors.
    I set up my word press permalinks using /%category%/%postname%/ on the permalinks page in ‘settings’.
    My when I write a post, I set it up as a new category name (child) and place it under a main category (parent)
    Google list only the URL and child name and not the main category name, thus causing the error, because Google is not listing the ‘main category’ or (Parent) name.
    How do I set up permalinks so Google can crawl URL, Category, Child?
    Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

  • Can anyone help me out with my issue? I would greatly appreciate any assistance.
    Many thanks

    This is my Permalink structure: /%category%/%postname%/
    This is my Category structure:
    • Medicare and Health Insurance – Parent
    o Caution Urged for Medicare Private Health Plans – Child
    o Tales from US Health Care Crypt – Child

    These are the errors I receive from Google.…rged-for-medicare-private-health-plans/ 404 (Not found) 404 (Not found)

    All of my posts are in 404 error status.
    Anyone have any suggestions on how to help.
    Many thanks!

    Ok, it seems each post not being recognized is because I assigned the PARENT as the Category. By changing each individual post as its own category seems to remove the error, however now I have 66 posts which have all become their own category, which removed the PARENT from the Category widget on my site. Anyone, anyone have any suggestions on how to keep my individual posts which I have now set to their own category and place them under a PARENT?
    many thanks

    I had to turn elsewhere.
