    I have a site added into Google Webmaster Tools and I was looking through the Crawl Errors and noticed google was trying to find a bunch of pages that did not exist. They were trying to access mydomain.com/the-page when the pages are mydomain.com/a-category/the-page. I'm using WordPress and I have my permalinks set to /%category%/%postname% so I don't understand what the issue could be? I have 0 pages indexed out of 381 urls in my sitemap.

    Do you have any other SEO plugins installed like All-in-one SEO?

    Google will try to figure out the best way to crawl your site and that includes swapping out querystring variables. They do this on their own without your guidance - and that may be what's going on with your errors.

    Indexing is an entirely different issue.

    Check the "post title format" in all-in-one seo plugin settings. There could be mismatch..

    Post Title Format is: %post_title% | %blog_title%

    I'm not sure what this has to do with the actual link to the post, because it's only the title tag of the page.
