It shows up about 100 times in my WMT not found pages. I do not have a french.php on my site that does translation. Anyone seen this before? Always the same language, pointing to disparate pages on the site.

What's odd is that my site does not have a single .php page. It's a yahoo store and .php pages don't even work. So the url is just totally made up somewhere. I've searched google for "french.php?=arabic.php" or whatever it was and nothing came up.

It's only if your "error page" really responds with a 200 status that this kind of thing makes trouble.
And what if it does respond with a 200 status. I have a yahoo store and my "404" page is fake; it does respond with a 200 status.

Scratch that. The URL I posted above (with my domain name re-inserted) does reply a 404 code. the 404.html page responds a 200 though.
Or a bunch of crooks are misleading Google.
I thought the same thing. I thought they'd upload that file onto unprotected servers, translate the pages and change the adsense ads to a new google account; but that wasn't the case on the ones I looked at. I'm not sure what the point of this is.
