SEO + Google Search Console Crawl Errors

3 years 3 months ago #123111 by Daniel Pickering
SEO + Google Search Console Crawl Errors was created by Daniel Pickering
I've recently taken over a site and migrated it to drupal 8.
The old site was infested with bot posts I've managed to banish the bots but non-html links have been left dotted around dodgy websites.
Currently I have 20 Page not found errors which should take you to 404 page.
I have a 404 set up that works, however when you try these links rather than getting a 404 you get a no input specified.

I've done some googling and it seems this is a nightmare to fix and can affect a sites SEO.

Really looking for any ideas as to how to get rid of these links or force them to my 404 page.

Hi dclpuk,

Try redirections for those broken links as this tutorial explains .

Kind regards,

Well that didn't work I think it might be related to my nginx setup. I'm going to have to try and review the way I have it set.

Hi dclpuk,

May you ask to your hosting provider for a clarification on this one? They should be able to check why redirections are not working through .htaccess

Kind regards,
