I am a bit of a beginner in the realm of website maintenance but am taking over in the interim of a coworker being let go.
I logged into our Google Webmaster tools and saw that we have 20,000 Crawl Errors.
I have verified that these errors have been fixed by writing manual rules in the .htaccess, but of course, Google Webmaster Tools is still showing them and my boss is now very nervous.
Here are my questions if you don't mind:
1. Is there a way to mark all of these as fixed instead of 1000 at a time every 2 - 4 days?
2. Are these harmful if the site itself and the links are fixed, but Google Webmaster crawl errors simply hasn't updated?
Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated - thank you for your time and have a wonderful day!
