We're getting the same thing on our website since yesterday morning. Our site is primarily just html and has been on the web 12 years and haven't done anything out of the ordinary with it lately and it's just generating plain 404 errors. We've had few hundred of googlebot trying to fetch weird page names. I don't know if it's relevant but the IP address of the googlebot in question is 22.214.171.124
Some examples of pages it has tried to fetch are :
Some of them are fairly unique and their 'real' locations on the web can be easily found. We also checked a couple of the sites we could identify and they don't even use the same hosting provider as ourselves.
I see Aussiefoto said they'd put a note into google. We've had a look around and can't actually see where to write to google regarding this type of problem. How would you contact them for this sort of matter?
