This is very odd, as a temporary solution, you could simply change the line: `Nothing found for %3C Span` to: `Nothing Found` But, I can't see how that could get into your URL's? I would investigate for other `%3C Span` tags and also checkout your site on W3C: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=nichewebsitestrategy.com&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0 for markup errors. Thanks,Bryan

It must be getting inserted into your URL via one of the plug-ins as a title attribute, although i've combed through the header where this code is located and that bit doesn't show up...i'll look further into cleaning the URL, but I think it's a plug-in doing this. Any of 'em modify permalinks or title tags?

Alright I cleaned everything up all I have is one error left through w3c. Not sure how to fix this last error. Not sure if it is part of the original problem I was having? http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fnichewebsitestrategy.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&group=0&user-agent=W3C_Validator%2F1.1#line-341

Do you mean did I modify the title tags as in H1 and H2? Yes I have but this is only done on the front page. Example...
<h4 class="fsub">Welcome Prospective SEO Gurus </h4><h2 class="ftitle">Learn about Niche Website</h2>

Don't worry about that error. It's something that WordPress does automatically. If you change permalinks do you still get this error? Or what does your permalink structure look like? I just don't get why it's putting part of the title attr in the URL

This is how I structure permalinks... For 404 pages in All in One SEO plugin Nothing found for %request_words% For pages,post categories and tags, for example pages is set to %page_title% | %blog_title%

I recommend temporarily disabling the following plugins 1 by 1 to see if the error goes away: - All in One SEO Pack - SEO Slugs If it does you will have pinpointed the culprit. I then recommend thoroughly going through and sharpening up it's settings to see if it's fixable and you can still use the plugin. If not, you may have to consider not using the plugin at all.

Alright Bryan thanks I will disable seo slugs for now and see if it affects it. I redirected the url's by hand so everything should be fine. This is now marked as solved. Thanks for your help guys.
