I've a website with Yola, I've been blogging twice a day for three to four years now and suddenly about a month ago, every blog post URL was being seen by Google as a 404 error. I started off by deleting each post, then having to delete the page entirely. Nothing. Google could still see it. I then requested that the main blog pages be deleted using Webmaster Tools, which was accepted, but no good. They still kept on coming back. I have since used URL link tools to make sure there is no sign of the old blog page on my site and I then resubmitted a new sitemap to Google. The problem still persists. I spoke with a technician at Yola yesterday who tells me there is nothing they can do their end and that it's a Google issue. Has anyone any idea on how I might want to go about getting rid of these errors and old pages that do not exist.
I had over 2600 errors at one stage. I selected all of them as being problem solved after trying to fix them and each day the number rises. I'm now seeing around 600. WMT is telling me that it's coming from my sitemap -
a-class-driving.com/sitemap.xml but I've checked and the page doesnt exist on there.
a-class-driving-school-blog.php was the original blog page.
Any help would be great.
