Hi. About 3 or so weeks ago I redesigned my site on the webflow platform. You can see it here:
Prior to this, I had a wordpress site that had gotten hacked and filled with a ton of injection spam.
My understanding is that now that I’ve redesigned my site, google will de-index all those old spam pages that give 404 errors.
Thats all well and good, but the issue I’m having is that a lot of that spam is not returning 404s in webflow, rather its returning 505 response code craw errors.
Why is this? Here is one example:
Why isn’t this old page giving a 404 error?
I can see in the search console crawl error section that there’s a whole directory “inc” that is returning 505 errors. My concern is that google will not de-index them from my webmasters account and that they can hurt my SEO efforts.
Can someone speak into this?
