    Smile How to remove old HTML links of my website from Google Search Console crawl errors?


    Hello,

    There are few old html links of my redesigned website which is appearing in the search console crawl error section as '404 error' (also includes old mobile version of the website connected to different server of which we don't have access to). Please tell us how we can get rid of these URL as these URLs still gets crawled when the page doesn't even exist.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can add a noindex tag to these pages.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    The thing is that we can't add 'no-index' tag for those pages in the backend since those are old site links and not to increase page loading time we don't even want to put those in our 'Robots.txt'. Those pages don't even exits. Please tell us some other way out to get rid of it.

    You could 301 redirect the old pages to lead to another relevant page on your site.

    Also make sure you submit a new sitemap through Search Console.

    Alternatively just leave them, if they're returning a 404 Google will eventually stop crawling them.
