  • URLs in summary pages give 404 in GWM

    Hi,

    We have an observation with vbulletin forum. In some of the summary pages, the URLSs are truncated, clicking on this gives the complete URL and the page loads fine. So the user experience is fine. But google webmaster treats these truncated URLS as 404s. Please let us know if something can be done for resolving this,

    Thanks!

    vBulletin shortens long URLs in posts, but this is only the visible link, the clickable link works fine.
    This has been the default behaviour for over a decade. It shouldn't cause any issues with Google. Google reads the actual link.

    For example:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...ive-404-in-gwm

    It's no different to posting a link like this.

      Hi Mark,

      Thanks for your reply!
      The reason we were worried is that our Google webmaster account was showing these shortened URLs as 404s. Hope this won't effect the sites performance with google.

      Thanks!
