Anyone have any insight into what this could be? Maybe it has something to do with my penalty.
I was browsing my log file tonight and noticed googlebot was busy. So when viewing the URLs he was spidering, I noticed alot of these:
(keep in mind that I 301 redirect anything with a "?" attached to my pages so it does make it to the correct url)
02/21 19:46 /mypage1.html?ref=example.org 301 redirect -
02/21 19:46 /mypage1.html
02/21 19:52 /mypage2.html?ref=example.com 301 redirect-
02/21 19:53 /mypage2.html
02/21 20:22 /mypage3.html?ref=example-2.com 301 redirect -
02/21 20:22 /mypage3.html
Anyone know what to make of this? It couldn't be good to make googlebot have to 301 like that to find the right page. And how the heck did someone make this happen? Should I inform google of this in a reconsideration?
