Help with 404 problems

Post by petbeemer » Fri Feb 09, 2018 12:17 pm

Can someone shed light onto this for me, i think i already know the answer but want someone to confirm!
Since changing some header tags and renaming things to make them more SE friendly i now seem to get massive amounts of hits on 404 page, im presuming it spiders looking for pages that were named "#####blah blah####" and have since been changed?
