    What is your average not found links on Google Webmaster?

    We have two clients that seem to be having what we would consider high not found links on Google Webmaster. Averaging about 4K to 6K. That would seem like a lot to us but just could be that there are that many houses turning around in the MLS in a big city. Anyone else have that high of a not found?

    I have over 30,000 crawl errors, trying to figure out what needs to be done as it seems google won't get rid of them. I read that you need to request to have a URL removed, which has to be done one at a time....don't have time to do that at this time. I also read another way by messing with htaccess on your Wordpress site, but don't really want to mess with that either. I'm hoping that support can shed some light on the subject. I'm wondering if we should have done something with the robots.txt and block something, but would that defeat the purpose of the widget?

    I have around 18,000 not found errors on webmaster. The older ones eventually expire and drop off the goog webmaster error list, so that number will fluctuate. A few weeks ago I had about 24,000.

    Hey Guys,

    I believe this has to do with new listings coming off the market. I explain the 404 errors in detail here:

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you Ricardo! I read your link, do you think it's better to just have a 404 and let it drop off eventually or use a plug-in like 404-to-start to redirect? If you do a redirect every time I can imagine that eventually you could end up with 100,000 properties sitting out there on the web that have been removed. Or, does google eventually drop those addresses?

    BTW, I started using the AskApache Google 404 plugin...I don't believe this is a redirect, I just put a custom 404 telling them why they got to this page and gave them some options.

    I wouldn't use a plugin to redirect. Google will eventually remove them from their cache. What I would do is customize your 404 page. I like this one for example: http://www.miamism.com/404.

    It's a simplified version, but I think you get the idea. Let the site visitor know the data they were looking for is no longer available and give them some search options - whether to search content on your site or search for properties by "clicking here."

    Hope that makes sense.

    What specific issues are you having at this point? Are you using a Paid version of the Plugin or just a trial?
