Spider 404 - Page Not Found

This report displays a list of the files that a spider attempted to access that no longer exist on the server, possibly because they were deleted, they were never created, or the URL was misspelled. While some 404 errors are common due to user error, many 404 errors to a specific resource indicate a problem with your site. Typically, a 404 result to a spider will result in the page being removed from the spider's index and could affect your SEO efforts.

Note: This report can be added as a report item to a custom or favorite report. It may also be used in the creation of standard reports. For more information on report items, refer to Understanding Report Items.
