So I got in Google webmaster tools and it is reporting crawl errors to pages on my site.
The problem is the pages in question don't exist, never did and never will. They are links from various other sites. At least one of which is a free website.
Why would someone make these links? Surely it is too much work just to hope I would click to see what these broken links are?
Google says I have a broken link www.mysite/astrology/data
from a site I never heard of. If I go to the site it is a list of links including that one.
I would write it off as a fluke but there are a half-dozen sites with astrology links and then a site with witchcraft links etc.
The site I work on is for a software company selling add-ons for MS products. Nothing to do with those links.
Any ideas what I'm dealing with?
