    Many 404 errors in google WMT


    I have found 115 "404 errors" (page not found) in my google web master tool.
    These errors are generated by links from spam websites.
    The pages do not exist in my website.
    Can they hurt my ranking in Google?

    Here is a 404 error example:

    Code:
    mywebsite.com/wp-content/uploads/myphoto-300x225.jpg" width="66" height="50" alt="image"/></a> </div> <div class="c0 r"><a href="/m/imgres?q=word1+word2+word3
    Thank you very much.

    If they are generated by links from spam websites they will not hurt your rankings.

    As seogoat said if its from a spam site google should see this and take no notice of those links.

    To be on the safe side you could setup a redirect for all links no found. This would basically just redirect all fake links to your home page, that way you lose no weight from the links or any visitors if they try to use these fake links.

    Yes, I was thinking to do so but I am afraid because the links are from spam websites and the redirect is difficult for me : as you can see in the first post the url is an html code.
