WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've got page, for eg. /about/ when after slash I put some numbers (not letters) I still get this same page. I really want 404 there.

Why? What to do to avoid that? SEO itp...

Of note, this wouldn't be bad for SEO if you added the canonical tags to your headings, Google would see the canonical URL and realise they're the same page not 2 separate ones. Newer versions of WordPress will attempt to redirect the user, so what you're trying to do is totally unnecessary –  Tom J Nowell Apr 19 '13 at 14:22
    
that's not good that two links or infinite number of links lead to this same page... –  yzoja Apr 19 '13 at 17:10
    
Thats why you tell Google what the correct page URL is, hence the 'canonical' authorative, default, permanent URL. Google will then see "OOoooh about/3434 is just another way of saying /about/, lets forget the 3434 part ". So no SEO issues –  Tom J Nowell Apr 20 '13 at 19:08
