Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
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.

[edit reason] use example.com. It can never be owned [/edit]
The "mysite.com/?q=pageword" is an existing page on my site, while the "?ref=somesite.com?" is not.
In my specific case, the site is a dictionary site, the "pageword" part is a dictionary entry.
It is strange whence google gets this url.
It's only if your "error page" really responds with a 200 status that this kind of thing makes trouble.

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.
