    (@malloyoy)


    This problem is really puzzling me. Search engine indexing started out fine but now everytime a search engine finds a new url it will add a random category or post title to the end of the url.

    e.g. – boxofficeblog.com

    /buzz/alien-autopsy/oscars/
    (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)

    /buzz/alien-autopsy/news/
    (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)

    /news/daniel-craig-promises-a-more-human-bond/articles/
    (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)

    It gets worse as a site gets indexed more.

    e.g. – babespy.net (no naked images, honest, I link to them)

    /category/aimee-chuhaloff/ftv-girls/angel-dark/vanessa-private-glamour/mariah-rito/ftv-girls/cassandra-lynn/jesse-capelli/adrianne-curry/cassia-riley/joanna-krupa/scarlett-johansson/zusie-galaxia/joanna-krupa/
    (NimbleCrawler 2.0.0)

    .htaccess – (url structure is /%category%/%posttitle%/)

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    How can I solve this problem? 3 of my sites have this same problem.

    Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?

    Your best bet would be to delete your .htaccess file – create another empty one and upload it. Then update your permalinks letting WP write to your .htaccess.

    Thanks for the reply, I will try that.

    No luck trying this. These URL’s aren’t on my website at all so where are the crawlers/bots finding them?
