Page/18 & 19 404 Errors Not Redirecting

  • Resolved Joe Streno

    Hi …

    I keep getting these similar 404 query URL errors in multiple forms. They all start with page/18 or 19, then either loginid or commentid.


    I’ve tried creating redirections using “ignore case” & “contains” page/18/?commentid, page/18/?loginid, etc to 401 Content Deleted. But the filters do not redirect anything and I still get 20-30 of these errors a day in 404 monitor.

    My CleanTalk SPAM Firewall tells me these are supposedly coming from multiple Microsoft owned crawler IP addresses … but somehow I don’t believe that.It looks like someone fishing to log into my WordPress site. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Any ideas or suggestions?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I am sorry but Rank math does not redirect URLs containing query strings, that is any URL with ?***.

    You can enable the Advanced mode of the 404 monitor to see the referring agents for each of the 404 logged URLs. To enabled this just head to Rank math > General Settings > 404 Monitor.

    If you really believe the URLs are likely spamming or similar hacking attempts on your site, you may have to add a more defensive protection plugin.

    Hope this helps you. Thank you.
