Hi,

I’m moving a site from reg to pro version.   On the general settings page, in setting the noindex for categories and 404’s I have a question.  My categories have been noindex because I’ve read that it can cause a duplicate content issue unless I write unique category info for each page or post.  In trying to understand all this google webmaster says I have a lot of 404’s on my site.  In looking at them they are all category pages, and they are live and can be found.  

Is this normal?  because I’ve read that google webmaster can say 404’s are found but it’s not a problem.

Should I noindex the 404’s setting in AIOSEO?

Thanks

Hi,

That’s good to know about categories so I guess I will check the box in general settings.

Yes, the pages no longer exist or I couldn’t find them in wordpress pages or posts sections is what I was wondering about.   I noticed in google webmaster they also give you the pages that are linking to the non existing pages because I guess by correcting the links is the best way to correct the issue.   When I go to the pages those links are on, I couldn’t find them.  I would do a search of the page source and they wouldn’t be there.  So how does someone fix broken links if you can’t find them?  Is there a way to search from the server or is it wordpress function that a user doesn’t really have access to without being a wordpress expert?

Or is it one of those things I don’t worry about, other more important settings to focus on?  The 404’s have a search box showing so surfers can look someplace else.

Thanks

Hi,

That plugin is incredible!   THANK YOU for that tip.  It’s finding broken links that the online checkers were not finding and more detailed for the info needed than google webmaster.
