[edit reason] for examples, please use example.com [/edit]
My initial thought is that Google is somehow indexing GigaBlast, which has the valid URL, but Google cannot correctly process the link.
In turn, I have about two-hundred URLs that Google is saying don't exist - we've seen in the past that that these invalid URLs affect the performance of our google ranking.
Most of all - I'm curious as to why and how Google is registering these URLs as 'valid' site URLs...
Ahh - the joys of SEO...
