lots of 404 errors generated from articles

Post by grayz » Sat Jun 15, 2013 6:34 pm

With enabled core redirection component (with my hack applied) I found that Google and other bots are "finding" a lot of broken links (over 100). The links looks like mydomain?catid=0&id=112. I've attached a screenshot demonstrating other links too.

From Google Webmaster Tools I found that links are generated from the articles with respective IDs. I.e., article with ID 122 is referring to this strange link mydomain?catid=0&id=112

Any ideas, why these links appear?
