What is %22http/www.example.com%22

I am doing a inurl:example.com in Google and I get the following:

www.example.com%22/
%22http/www.example.com%22
example.com

Of course the site is MIA and have some 302 redirects. Is there anything I can do to fix it? I've added a 301 to cannonizize the URL form domain.com to www.example.com.

Thanx.

Edit: My post is incorrect: see larryhatch's post below

The %22 the escape tag for a space. Do you have any badly formatted link tags with too many spaces?
eg: <a href=" [example.com...] "> (there should be no spaces between the quotes.)

Also check your 301 Scripts for excess spaces.

Eg: redirect301(" [example.com...] ")

I thought %22 stood for the quotation mark "

I read this as a URL enclosed in quotation marks
as in "www.yadda.com"

Here is my .htaccess

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}!^www\.domain\.com [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [domain.com...] [L,R=301]
</IfModule>

Is there something wrong with it?

Probably best to ask that question in the Apache Web Server forum, you'll get a quicker answer

BTW, thanks Larry. You're right %22 is a quote. It's %20 that is a space.

Ive did a w3 Link Checker and all the links are fine, no spaces.

I am seeing the same thing when a do a inurl:example2.com for another site of mine. Both sites have 301 redirect in .htaccess. I am trying to find out if this is a mistake of mine or a Google glitch.

It's very likely to be a problem with the 301 redirects on your server. I can't help you more as I don't have much experience with Apache.

Is there any way to move this post on the Apache forum?
Thanx.

Yes there is a problem with your .htaccess file.

It redirects www.domain.com to www.domain.com so you need to remove the www from one of the lines.

<edit>OOPS. I didn't see the ! (meaning "NOT") in the first line, so it actually redirects all subdomains over to www too. That should be fine.</edit>

I thought the principal cause of this was people linking to your site with a bad HREF

goto Google and type site:%22

You'll find loads...

I have a related problem that I have been scratching my head about for several months.

I use mod_rewite in .htaccess to change pages from www.example.com?id=23&table=sometable&cat=flowers
to
www.example.com/23/sometable/flowers.htm

Works fine except I keep getting these rogue urls:

www.example.com?id=5%E2%88%8F=90cat=flowers

or similar.

No idea where its coming from. Dont think its internal.
