Non-existing resourced being indexed

Post by lovejoomi » Sat Feb 24, 2018 7:28 am

Hey guys,

One of my websites has a problem with google. There are crawl errors shown on my WBT panel reporting 404 504 510 and some other errors saying google bot crawled but there was no such resource and it is true I removed those links years ago. So question is how is it possible that something is there and at the same time it is not?

Now, today something hit my mind, I never cleared my website cache since I removed those links and I did it just now.

Is it possible that google bot was being misled by expired/old website cache?

You could use the remove url function in your google account.
