A lot of my blog pages listed in Google Webmaster Tools end like this:
www.mydomain.com/links.php (this comes after the full link to the post). They are giving "not found" errors. I'm not sure why this is and I don't want it. How can I redirect these links (using .htcaccess) so that this last bit is cut off?

RewriteRule ^(backreference)pattern http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

The Regular Expression needed to capture the backreference and for the pattern of what needs to be cleared in the redirect isn't clear from the description of the URLs involved.
