Google crawling / 404'ing nonexistent parameter urls - W3TC? (1 post)

    Google crawling / 404'ing nonexistent parameter urls in Google Webmaster Tools.

    I am using %postname% pretty urls, the post urls are generally good but there are parameters added to the end that I cannot find in my database and are throwing 404's - and would these parameters be creating duplicate content if they were found?

    an example of what is happenning would be http://mysite.com/mypost/?share=twitter or http://mysite.com/?share=email or http://mysite.com/my-profile-email@mysite.com

    anybody else ? Is this anything that WP-SEO is adding to the mix? I am also using W3TC - ???

    Thoughts? After going nuts trying to redirect hundreds of these bad urls I am currently trying blocking them in Google Webmasters (GW) URL Parameters I went from having 0 404's in GW and 0 reported by 404 Redirected (404 Plugin) to currently 326 in GW and nearly 1000 by the 404 Plugin.
