I have 23 pages that according to google search console have crawl errors. (no such URL). When I click on the page in google it comes up with the error message. When I check my site, it goes to the page, no problem. Why?
I have checked in a broken links checker and it says I have zero broken links.
My traffic is horrible so I am wondering if this is an issue.
Help Please!

Sometimes it's just that there is a slight delay on loading certain pages - run the report again, I bet it's either different pages or none. :shock:

Hi Lori,

You're mixing capital letters and lower case letters in the file names.

For example,

This page is called [Domain Private]/Craft-Tips.html with capitals.

A link with lower case letters, as you have in your list, like this, [Domain Private]/craft-tips.html, will give a 404 error. You can click both these links to see what happens.

This can get really confusing, and it's preferred for file names to be all lower case.

yep... what Will said; I had the same issue with Google crawl errors and it was because of the caps/lowercase issue

I was not aware of the caps/lowercase thing at the time, but now that I am aware of it, I create all my new pages in lowercase only

the error is because people are linking to your pages, but are typing lowercase, while your pages are uppercase; add 301 all lowercase redirects for each pages with caps and it'll fix the errors

for my older pages, I've created lowercase 301 redirects for each of them, which cured the errors with Google finding 404s

How do I do a redirect? Should I wait until after I convert to https or will it even be necessary then? Will the magic of SBI just fix it with the https redirect? Sorry, that might be a really dumb question. I'm still trying to work up the nerve to do the switch to https. So much of this stuff is so far over my head, I feel like I am drowning!
Thanks again,
Lori

In the 301 Library. Read the help file (the link to the library is in Site Central).

Lori from Greely wrote:Should I wait until after I convert to https or will it even be necessary then?
If you have forms to fill out (ie: your email sign up) you should migrate to https. I don't think it matters which way around it is.

Pretty much.
