    Multiple errors on WMT for URL that doesnt exist anymore


    Hello everyone.

    We did a few upgrades on one of our websites.
    The categories URL stay the same. the problem is Google indexed the aspx urls and now canít find them.
    * The aspx urls were different before, we use a different aspx urls

    The result for now is a Hugh amount of errors because WMT cannot find these urls.

    My question:
    1. What will be the proper solution for this problem?
    I had the same problem with some static cat pages; I just redirected them to the home page. In this case the error is 10 times bigger so I am not sure if this will be the best solution.
    What do you think?

    2. do you think these error could have a negative effect on my website ranking ?

    1) Use the URL removal tool in WMT

    2) Google states that 404's dont generally harm your listings but can hurt internal linking.
