  • @anthony 404 could also mean something called a soft dead link..linking to nowhere
  • OK, but I have over 70 pages that not found on our site that I want to removed from Google search. Do I have to add them all to the User-Agent* or deleting them in Google Webmaster is enough?
  • 404 is just a page on your network that doesn't exist maybe because you spelled it wrong.  To add what you don't want the robots to find.  Go to your dashboard and under Tools click search bots and make what ever page link disallow example below  You dont need to enter you website just everything after the .com

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /profiles/blogs/80mg-adderall-buy-adderal

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to removed some NOT FOUND page in Google Webmaster and I received the below confirmation, what does it mean.

  • Glad I could help!
