I'm reviewing some errors in Google Webmaster Tools / Search Console.
I'm getting a lot of 404 errors for pages that don't exist such as:
My site doesn't use WordPress or a
/page URL structure as the above would suggest.
I looked to see where Webmaster Tools says they are linked from. I found that they are being linked from a old site which I now 301 to this current site. Somehow it must be trying
/page12.html on the old site and because the old site has a site wide 301 to the new site it is causing the crawl errors. It doesn't actually matter if its doing this as its a "bot only bug" which users would never see, but could that effect our rankings?
