    Hi everyone,




    I have a problem that google webmaster notifies me about and hope i can find answer here.




    lets say my link is like this : www.myWebsite.com/website/2016/page.html




    My problem is that google notifies my that i have alot of 404 page errors for examlpe :




    - www.myWebsite.com/website/2016/
    - www.myWebsite.com/website/




    I dont want google to divide my link and go there because its not a real link and it gives lot of 404 pages in google webmaster ,I just made it with HTACCESS, the real link is something like this :




    - www.myWebsite.com/site.php?web=website&year=2016




    Thanks in advance

    Home Page:
    I assume you have already redirected that 404 URLs to your existing url with htaccess file.If not,do it.And fetch as google in webmaster tool again.That solves the problem.
