I recently ran a site check and it tells me some of my site pages have 4xxx errors. However, the pages that it gives me start with my website URL, but have a second part that i didnt create. When i click on the link, it takes me to a page that cant be found on my website.

Does anyone knoq what this is all about and how to rectify it so that my site will be healthier?

Hi Kevin,
I am assuming you mean 4XX and not 4XXX. Your question is rather broad because there are a whole host of errors that fall into this category.

These are errors that occur on the client side. Meaning that something you have done or failed to do has generated an error.

For instance a 404 error occurs when the page is missing. This may mean the page does not exist or has been moved and the owner did not set up a page redirect.

When this happens you will receive a 404 error.

Are you satisfied with the answers you have received thus far? If not would you please pinpoint the exact 4XX errors you are having?

are these pages that wordpress will make ...such as tag archives or date archives...
have you made any changes to the structure of your site...
if there are only a few then don't worry about them....
i hope you get it sorted

I think it is actually pages WP has created, but dunno why.
The links to the listed sites that contain these errors are not pages i created. They open a page with my websites backround,etc but with an 'OOPS! This page cannot be found" notice on it.
I'm thinkin to myself ;Of course you cant! I never made any such page'
Haha
But just tryin to figure out how im supposed to rectify it.

have a look at what you have listed in your sitemap and see if any are in there...
it probably is what wp makes and are called archive pages ...
i took my tags and images out of my sitemap to reduce single summary archive pages...
i hope you manage to track them down...

No, no... it's searching WA tutorials using keywords to find what you are looking for.

Here's a video on how to use search:
