KNOWN ISSUE: Over a hundred Not Found (404) errors on sub-domain!

    Sue Adamsposted 3 years ago

    I received this rather alarming message from Google Webmaster Tools today:

    "Google detected a significant increase in the number of URLs that return a 404 (Page Not Found) error. Investigating these errors and fixing them where appropriate ensures that Google can successfully crawl your site's pages."

    Many of the URLs that fail to be crawled look like:
    http://sue-adams.hubpages.com/1027454/h … ed_520x280

    All preceded by
    http://sue-adams.hubpages.com/
    follows a list of just 25 of the 110 urls that are broken links on my sub-domain that I cannot fix:

    There are no less than 110 of such errors just on my own subdomain! Should I be worried? Anyone else facing this?

      These are not a problem. They're not links to your hubs, they're mostly links to ad units, which google doesn't need to crawl.

        I too had a similar message on my WMT dashboard. Good to know it's not really a problem.

    Susana S has it right. Google is really aggressive at trying to extract urls from JavaScript. These aren't urls, but they try them any ways.

    Regardless, we will try and clean it up and have been looking at a few solutions.

      I received the same message again today except the number of broken links has now increased from 110 to 124!

      "http://sue-adams.hubpages.com/: Increase in not found errors

      Paul, you said you were going to do something about this. Have you found any solutions?

        We put out one of the recommended fixes, but I'm still seeing new reports. There could be a lag in our fix and google reporting errors. I'm going to watch it over the next few days and if they don't slow way down, we will try something else.

    Relieved, I hope it will soon be fixed.
    Thank you Paul, for quick response.

    That is good news- I had an e mail too but did not really understand it and put my hope in Hubpages understanding it! Seems it was the right thing to do
