500 HTTP errors are showing up on my site for every Gooogle Plus link

Just today, 500 HTTP errors are showing up on my site for every Google Plus link. Could someone offer more details as to why? Is this solely due to gplus.to as your Plus link shortener? 

 

What do you recommend that I do to remove these errors?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi Jeannie,

Can you send through your URL or your business name so we can try to replicate the error? Without seeing it myself, I'm not able to tell much about the issue.

Thanks,

Dear Elizabeth,

Thank you for your interest in helping me.

Yes, here is my URL: https://www.hillwebcreations.com (I assumed that was attached to my account) My business name is Hill Web Creations.
I uploaded an image showing each error; you can view it here: https://www.hillwebcreations.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/500-http-errors-from-google-plus-posts.j...

Hi Jeannie,

Thanks for the detailed information. I tried to look up the posts that were mentioned in the screenshot, and it looks like they may no longer exist. Unfortunately, I'm not able to troubleshoot much beyond that, however, that's what it looks like from what I am able to see.

Best,
Liz

Liz,

Thank you for your response. From my experience, all posts remained consistently live and with tested with top technical SEO scores using SEMRUSH.

The issue of 500 HTTP errors are showing up on my site for every Google Plus link resolved itself within a day. Not sure why. Perhaps the error warnings were a fluke of sorts.

In any case, I am grateful that they no longer appear and hope that means that they do not exist.

Best regards, Jeannie
