Web Crawl - Not found error
I've an error on my google webmaster tools which I want to get rid of. Google says the URL is
http://a-class-driving.synthasite.com...=

Which I know nothing about. When I click on this link, the 404 error page comes up and gives me the option of going to synthasite. Any ideas what this is?

Hi Will

So Google is "not finding" a page that "doesn't exist". That much makes sense. The question is where the link is coming from that Google is attempting to follow.

Can you email us at support@synthasite.com and copy and paste the full error message from Google, or better still, send us a screenshot. This will help us figure out what is going on.

Thanks Lee. One quick question. Because it's my links page, and google has an issue with it, will that mean when it comes to ranking it wont be able to see my links, therefor resulting in a poorer listing rank?

Is this your links page? http://a-class-driving.synthasite.com... because that is not the same as the URL you gave above.

no not exactly, 2 things, if google can not see the entire links page it wont see any of the links in that page but that wont effect your indexing ranks, it just will never list that specific page in search results (cos it thinks it doesnt exsist). If its a single link on that page that it can not follow it won't make any differnence to you.

The link you provided above is to the .index.php of your site.

What i would do is email synthasite and try to include a screen shot or more information, Whats unclear is whether or not google can not get to your links page or can not follow an outbound link from on that page.
(does that make sense)

if your using vista press windows key then type snipping tool - and you can take screen shots with that.

At the end of the day your sites ranks being damaged by 1 error is unlikely, so don't worry. Also i would go through every link on your links page testing it to see if they work - you might find the offender this way
