Hi all,

There are so many pages listed under "Coverage - Crawl anomaly". These pages are obviously wrong.
These page looks like:
https://www.example.com/page.html/category1/category2/category3/category4/xxx.html
https://www.example.com/page.html/RK=2/RS=ZkgbrCl0sj8I4gMVxy0ItbcWHWQ-/category1/category2/category3/category4/xxx.html

Our question is How Googlebot crawls these pages.

Yes, GSC is a mess. It's like they took parts of different url's and created new ones.

@skaterpunk

Thanks for your reply. We cannot find such links on our website. Is it possible because of relative links?

You can inspect the URLs and check if there is a 'Referring page.'

Owin, I can't help you on the "why" as I've never found and answer. But, I can share that I also have a lot of gibberish urls in the Coverage - Crawl anomaly section that make no sense.

For months the new GSC has seemed to be a project under development rather than a useful tool. I would not worry too much about their “errors”.

I had a huge problem with this about five years ago. I never found the cause and eventually it all resolved on its own.
