    It is probably caused by one of your plugins, i.e. one related to searching.


    I’m getting the exact same issue on my blog. Just started to be an issue with the past week or so. In the Google Webmaster Tools, Google is started to display those links as 403 Crawl Errors. Though the issue appears and disappears at random.

    Scribu, below are the plugins installed for my blog. Would you have any ideas on any potential conflicts? I could then mess around with activating and deactivating until I figure out what’s causing it.

    Though, I haven’t installed any new plugins for a while now and up until a few weeks ago there were no issues with the WP-Pagenavi plugin displaying random searches.

    Here’s an example of one:

    Active Plugins:

    All in One SEO Pack
    Contact Form 7
    Display widgets
    Google Analyticator
    Google XML Sitemaps
    Pretty Link (Lite Version)
    Simple 301 Redirects
    WP Minify
    WP Super Cache

    @farwalker: It looks like your site has been infected by malware.

    Same problem! Its the problem of WP-PageNavi! Uninstalling as it is extremely bad for SEO!

    @above All: Remove Google Analytics and you will be fine!

    Just switched to this plugin, guys:

    I hope it doesn’t have the same bug.

    Didn’t work, the bug is not related to the pagination plugin. Bugger! 🙁

    I am telling you its the issue of WP-Super Cache with Google Analytics. Its confirmed.

    I’ll notify WP-Super Cache’s developer and see what does he say. I can’t simply get rid of Google Analytics.

    I am in contact with him directly on Twitter. I will also report the issue. Again the issue is with Google Analytics NEW code. Some people resolved it by adding the Analytics code in footer (Below page navigation links)

    If you will disable the WP-Super Cache, you will see that it wont cache any Analytics query.


    I believe in you, because I only see the problem when I visit my site from another browser in which I’m not logged in to WordPress (e.g., accessing pages with cache enabled).

    You exactly got my point. Its a terrible issue for SEO as it is increasing the duplicate content by accessing the same thing though different URLs. You can temporarily block this through robots.txt

    You mean block Google and other search engines?!

    Yes, you can block Google from indexing that query URL. It will solve the duplicate content issue.
