In this video we will look at “Crawl errors” in Google Webmaster Tools (GWMT) and discuss the meaning of each error.
Types of crawl errors found in GWMT
When a page returns a response code “500” or a variation of code 500, Google records it as a server error and notify us here.
This will allow you to trouble shoot especially if your site is divided into sections and only part of it is down, a lot of time you do not find out until someone tells you.
A soft 404 happens when a user requests a page that no longer exists and is landed to a page that is different from the original page and yet the page still returns a 200 OK status server response. Google doesn’t this because it is not user friendly.
