Pages with broken links

A 404 error occurs when a user requests a page that does not exist on the site. It happens when the page has been removed from the site, or its URL has been changed. Search engines do not reduce the position of the site with a small number of these errors. However, if the site has a large number of pages with 404 errors, then the search engines may take note of this as evidence of a poorly maintained site and demote you accordingly.

Note: Our crawler may sometimes receive a 404 error from a page that loads correctly for the user and has no visual issues, but is showing as a 404 non-existent page to our crawler. If this occurs, then we would recommend for you to check the response codes for these pages manually and report any false positives.
