    Please see attached images & Google’s message below. Is this supposed to be happening? It seems like this would hurt their SEO.

    Increase in “404” pages on http://homes-for-sale.allegiantpropertiesaz.com/
    June 22, 2016
    To: Webmaster of http://homes-for-sale.allegiantpropertiesaz.com/,

    Googlebot identified a significant increase in the number of URLs on http://homes-for-sale.allegiantpropertiesaz.com/ that return a 404 (not found) error. This can be a sign of an outage or misconfiguration, which would be a bad user experience. This will result in Google dropping those URLs from the search results. If these URLs don’t exist at all, no action is necessary.

    Recommended Actions:
    1
    Identify the URLs with errors
    Open the Crawl Errors report in your Search Console account to review the list of sample URLs.
    Check Crawl Errors
    2
    Fix the issue
    If these URLs are meant to exist, review the server configuration to make sure that it returns 200 OK (you may need help from your server administrator or hoster for this). If these URLs are invalid or not meant to exist, review the source of the URLs. Fix any links to these URLs from within your website and consider contacting external sites linking to them. Consider redirecting the invalid URLs to the appropriate page on your site, if recognizable. URLs that return 404 Not Found do not affect the rest of your website’s visibility in search.
    3
    Verify the fix
    Once you’ve fixed the URLs with errors, make sure that Googlebot can access and see your URLs properly, or that they return the correct error result code. Use Fetch as Google for this step.
