I'm getting a bunch of similar things going on with my sites today .. it just started. here's what's going on with me: From my access logs today, google generated over 700 404s, requesting urls from other websites:
Googlebot is requesting urls that don't exist on my site, and have never existed, but do exist on other websites .. here's some examples:
I have a wordpress directory on my site called /journal/, so the url paths are similar. particularly with categories and tags, etc .. /journal/tag/photos/ for example ... but if you google those urls, they're not from my website, but other websites. The same thing is happening with my other domain, and the wordpress directory is called /ramblings/
Those are not from my website, but from other sites.
But then it gets weird.
Even urls like this are being requested:
Those have nothing to do with my site or directory structure; they're just about randomly picked url paths from around the web and google is requesting them on my site. And I'm also getting these kinds o furls:
It only happened today, so I can't yet see if they show up in Google Webmasters Tools.
From the posts above, I'm wondering if I should just remove all 301s from my htaccess file. Thoughts?
