    Getting unknown urls in Crawling errors?


    When ever i am checking crawling errors on google webmaster tools, it shows some unknown urls which are not in my website.
    example links:
    http://www.example.com/shopbrand/004/002/X
    http://www.example.com/shopdetail/003003000022
    http://www.example.com/shop/shopbran...%83%8F%83C%83g
    http://www.example.com/shop/basket.html
    http://www.example.com/shopbrand/ct608

    Here /shopbrand, /shopdetail, /shop , /shop/basket urls are not in my website. why iam getting these urls in crawling errors?

    It could very well be an indication that your site has been hacked, maybe, it's a possibility.

    A plugin malfunction, if you're using WP or some other CMS.

    Have you check the above mentioned possibilities ?

    I had this the other day. Worked out it came from a 301 that was on a clients site redirecting all traffic to my main site. I suspect it's the same sort of thing here. If this is not considered normal activity, suspect it's something Google is playing with.

    Crawling errors on google webmaster tools means that someone created links to not existing page on you site. Maybe it is some bug in your CMS.
    Errors with "/admin" "/shop" "/login" and other suspicious stuff usually means that some hacking bot trying to find how to crack you site.

    More information is required to offer further suggestions, otherwise what KOS has said is about all we can say. The sort of questions I'd be asking myself are: -

    1. Has this just started, or did you used to have these (or similar) URLs & it's legacy traffic from backlinks elsewhere etc?

    2. Do you have a 404 page setup, or do these pages actually render some kind of result, so the server & Google think its actually a page?

    3. Can you see these page results in Google Analytics, have you got server access & any monitoring to see if any IP or further details can be gleaned from the data about where this traffic is coming from?
