    first you have to understand the meaning of those errors:

    404 - 404 or Not Found error message, indicating that the client was able to communicate with the server, but the server either could not find the file that was requested, or it was configured not to fulfill the request and not reveal the reason why.

    400 - Bad Request

    403 - Forbidden 404 Not Found

    Your site developer must be able to resolve these issues, as this are development issues, and you must asked your developer to look into these and fix them, it is his responsibility, and you must not suffer cause of his sloppy work.

    this is because your website/page is unavailable when the time of google crawler visit your website/page. this may happen sometimes (because of server down for maintenance/upgrade etc).. no need to worry. if you're able to open your website/page then please wait for some days. google crawler will revisit all the pages or sites you have submitted in google webmastertools...

    Is your site on a Windows or linux server? Check your GWMT to see the 404 error pages, it may be you removed some pages or were renamed or something like that... if that's the case, I usually go into my .htaccess file and redirect the non-existent pages to avoid those crawl errors like this:

    redirect 301 /blog/old_page_here.html (insert the new/correct full url here)

    Sorry, but the forum will not let me put the full sample url there. Hope it helps

    Hi,

    This is good that you know about all the errors(400,403 & 404). Now try to solve it one by one. Take 404 errors first. Visit each error one by one, open each link where 404 comes. Now check the pages, it is possible that you will place a wrong hyperlink or textual link. Rectify them if possible otherwise remove them by placing it in the URL removal tool. Now fix the error. For 400 error check your 400 Bad Request error is because the URL may be typed wrong or the link that was clicked had some error. Now last 403 error, it may be possible that at the time of pinging it may not get any response or find directory structure from where user may fetch the data. Check this issue to.

    Hope you will got your solution, if not feel free to discuss more.
