Page Reporting Question

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have several pageviews on urls. 

 

Example: /http://mysitename.com/page/1/

 

There are several separate pages, i.e. page/1 and page/2 and so on.

 

When I check these urls they come up as 404's. Is this a redirect issue? How do I correct to get the proper pages reported?

 

Thanks,

 

Doug

It's not a problem with the report. Somewhere, possibly on a random site across the globe, there is a link to your site with a page that doesn't exist.

http://mysitename.com/NoPageWithThisName

Your server is still contacted and loads what it can. Probably a template with the tracking code in the header. Check the referring domains report and the previous page reports. You should be able to find where it's coming from

That looks like the results of a Wordpress plugin (Google Analytics by Yoast) tracking download links on your site. If you have that plugin on your Wordpress site, then it may be trying to record the next-page-of-results links on your blog as downloads because they don't work as-is (they are not valid links for some reason). Wild guess...maybe it helps...
