    Hi, I have just noticed we are experiencing a lot of crawl errors returning 404′s from our ‘shop page’. It appears that Google is throwing up these errors from the two (Woocommerce) dropdown menus where the customer can choose how many products to display per page/order by price etc etc.

    Any ideas why this might be happening?

    Hi Mac,

    I’m not really sure why that would be happening, but those are just the default woocommerce options so it may be a plugin issue. Either way, you can update your theme files to 1.4 which has the most recent round of woocommerce fixes as well as updating woocommerce to the most recent version (I believe 2.10 right now).

    Same problem since updated to WC 2.0.10

    Lot’s of 404 errors from market layered nav, like “market/page/2/?filter_brand=245&product_count=150&product_order=title”

    More than one layer selection refers to 404

    market/page/2/?filter_brand=245 -> OK

    market/page/2/?product_count=150 -> OK

    BUT market/page/2/?filter_brand=245&product_count=150 -> Error 404

    Sounds like there is an issue with WooCommerce 2.0.10 if it just started happening.

    I’m not currently getting the same errors on my end I don’t have a live install setup with an in depth shop. If you have an example showing the issue we can take a look but keep in mind we aren’t WooThemes so all we can do is report bugs to them if there is an issue with WooCommerce.

    Has the above issue been resolved as I am also experiencing the same problems. http://www.teddybearsplus.com.au/buy/baby-range/page/2?product_order=date&product_count=72 causes a 404 as my products don’t go up to that product count. Any help would be appreciated. Is it a woo commerce issue ?

    I am personaly still getting these errors – hundreds by the day in some cases. I have deleted the sorting menus on the shop pages and also set the URL parameters in GWT (did the latter over a month ago) but neither appear to have helped resolve the crawl errors.

    Suprised it is not happening to more website owners as it seems like just a handful are affected hence so little information on the subject online.

    It seems like google tries to cawl every combination and this does not always work. Eg pagination (page 2) will only work if the product count is set to 48: http://www.teddybearsplus.com.au/buy/baby-range/page/2?product_order=date&product_count=48 but not to 72. Maybe try to block all requests to urls which contain php parameters – I’d recommend to use a robots.txt file with following rules

    Disallow: /
    # global
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /cgi-bin
    Disallow: /wp-admin
    Disallow: /wp-includes
    Disallow: /wp-content/plugins
    Disallow: /wp-content/cache
    Disallow: /wp-content/themes
    Disallow: /trackback
    Disallow: /feed
    Disallow: /comments
    Disallow: /category/*/*
    Disallow: */trackback
    Disallow: */feed
    Disallow: */comments
    Disallow: /*?*
    Disallow: /*?
    Allow: /wp-content/uploads

    Many thanks Dude, will give your advice a bash and monitor results, credit where its due for potential solutions on essentially a non related theme issue.
