Support » Fixing WordPress » Permalinks problem – Google crawls as 404 Error
4 years, 9 months ago
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?
Can you give me your site url???
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?
Google webmaster tools and Seomoz crawl
anybody can help me?
Is there any problem with Apache server that treats permalinks as directories?
Can you paste some samples / screen shots?

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:
