    404 on social media links

    My site has links in a header bar on every page to our social media sites. For some reason, Google Webmaster Tools is comin up with 404s on every page like this: www.domain.com/page/www.twitter.com/user

    I don't see these links in the page source though. Any suggestions on how to resolve these?

    Are these links auto-generated?

    If google webmaster tool is showing 404 for some urls then it means they are their in your website ( their is a possibility that you haven't generated these urls but are generating automatically " reasons may be different either via database or via any scrip etc.. that you or your development team need to find.)
    To find these type of urls you have to first define your website on a website development tools like Dreamweaver or any other website development tool ( Its better to take an expert help instead of doing by your on).

    It would be much better if you can provide your site link to analyse.
    But if its returning a 404, you have to check that there is no error in the coding when connecting the link with a hrefs. Re-check it and make sure that its also not auto generated.

    Some 404 errors displayed on GWT can't be tracked anymore. Is there other ways to track them other than Dreamweaver.
