Google Consol Driving Me Crazy

Last Update: May 02, 2018

Hi I am going crazy over this index issue, and can not figuare out how to fix it, my site is about the area I live in, and I do have alot of pictures, the problem is for every picture I put up it seem or to me it looks as if there is a page created for that picture and then I get this error submitted URL not found, in the google console. At this time I have 25 of them I don't want to hurt my indexing. Can some one please tell me how to fix this

I have been working on this problem today, and in researching found that all the 404's are coming from photos that are not on my website.
I started this site when I was here in 2014, lost the hosting and everything that I created due to financial difficulties, but kept the domain, Have now started recreating the site again, and everything is different. The only thing I can figure is that the pictures that were on the site are now gone (they are not even in my media ). Do I just need to leave it alone or is there a way to get rid of them since I can't go into the sitemap and fix the problem.
Am still confused. Any Suggestions?

To be honest I would leave this alone.

If you build a site on a domain .. then you let it go .. and lose the information .. then rebuild another site on the same domain later on, it will create issues.

I know .. as also I made this mistake some time ago.

I remember contacting Kyle for this... and he advised me to start afresh with everything. Fresh domain name... fresh content .. fresh images... complete restart.

This maybe is not what you want to hear I know.. it annoyed me too, but in the long run, it is probably the best option.

Stay with your passion .. it is fine ... just be sure to do everything fresh ... just make a complete restart... it will save you a lot of hassle down the road.

You will do it...

Let me ask you this Vicki? When you go to edit your photos in this article do you have the link set to "none"?
