Hi All,

 

For Error Page I have configured Error event. Now in google analytic for google/cpc it's shows daily error like in page section - 1) /error 2) /images/pdf.. 3) /t 4) /product url etc

 

So I do not understand though I checked our adwords nothing is there like above pages then how google analytic is showing?

Now other than this for google / organic and direct it's shows error but again all different pages. For direct I do understand it is visitior can type anything but why google / organic showing 404.

 

I regular check webmaster, I regular crawl my sites and if any page I found 404 I sort it out. But the pages which google provide me I never found on my site. My XML sitemap also perfect.

 

Can anyone help me out I am wrong anywhere in configuration or wrong report send to me?

 

Please help.

 

Thanks!

Mitesh

Hey Mitesh, 

 

A 404 error can happen for any number of reasons. I can happy from a direct search with someone misspelling a sub-directory URL, it could could theoretically be caused by a web crawler. 

 

If the traffic is coming from google / organic this is a little vexing ... 

 

I would first try an open source or free broken link checking tool to verify there are no existing broken links. 

 

Besides that I would dive deeper into the google / organic. Try using a secondary dimension like keyword to see if there is a connect between the 404 traffic and specific searches. 

 

Let me know if this helps.

Hi Josh,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Broken link never exists on my site. I always check in google with keyword but I never found any 404. So it is something anywhere wrong implementation or mistake from google?

 

Also for many keywords it shows me ( not set ) so how can I handle this not set data?

 

Thanks!
