Title: How to deal with crawl errors in Google Search Console
Post by: Jinx on February 14, 2017, 05:34:39 PM
 A website owner cannot avoid crawl errors and it does not have an immediate negative effect on your SEO performance. Whenever you go through the crawl error report, you will find a hundred or thousands of crawl errors. But can anyone answer how can I deal with these errors?

First of all, you need to login to the google webmasters to identify the errors.
There are majorly two sections
1. Site Errors and
2. URL Errors.
You have to figure it out first what type of error you are getting. And for that, you need to go to the Crawl Errors section. In the Crawl Errors section, you get the complete list of errors from which you can easily identify what type of errors you are getting. That means whether they are Site errors or URL errors.

If you try to remove manually, then also Google takes a time to remove the 404 errors from its index. Therefore, I will advise you to leave as it is.

Yes, it does affect the website organic ranking because it delivers a bad user-experience to visitors.

As mentioned above, there are two types of error, but in that also there are sub types of error:

Site:

i) DNS Error
2) Server Error
3) Robots Failure

URL:

1) Soft 404
2) 404
3) Access denied
4) Not followed
5) Server error and DNS error

Find which error you are facing and get a proper solution to it.

For DNS error make sure your DNS settings are correct for your ISP or network.
To deal with server error you need to first check your server is properly configured or not.If not then you must configure it first.
