  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Please take a look at the following resource page for some more info on how to handle 404 errors: https://rankmath.com/kb/fix-404-errors/
    To fix the old theme content errors, please head over to the refferer pages and delete the links to the outdated content. This will be the most ideal method to clear recurring error logs.

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    Hi! I have already read this article. but how can I delete the links to outdated content? from my wordpress as well as from google search. after deleting from 404 monitor it show up again and again. I don’t wanted to keep any outdated content.

    Thanks,

    Milind.

    Hello,

    The best way to resolve the 404s is by redirecting them to the most related page on your website. If you don’t have one, you can create an HTML sitemap index and direct all 404s to that page.

    This is something you will need to handle on your end.

    Please note that we can only help you reporting the 404s, fixing them is not our domain and you will have to use your best judgment when depicting what to do with the 404s.

    You can exclude certain paths from getting reported from WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > General Settings > 404 Monitor.
    exclude 404

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Thanks for your support
    Regards,
    Milind
