SEO Software Finds a Deleted Blog Post

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.smdphotography.co.uk

Hi there,

During the lockdown I'm giving my website some SEO love. I've subscribed to an SEO auditing package and I'm really happy that my overall site health has improved from 68% to 88%.

The issue that is driving me nuts is the SEO software references a blog post which isn't there and it's generating a 404 code which is affecting my SEO score. Here's the page.

I've deleted other blog posts in exactly the same way which I deleted the one above and as expected they are no longer there so aren't getting tracked.

I can only imagine that a link to the deleted blog post appears somewhere on my website or in the sitemap.xml but I can't find it anywhere. Is there a way to search the whole website for the link? Or do you think that there is another issue?

I hope that someone can help as this issue is driving me nuts!

Best wishes,

Hello! I ran your site through my site auditing software and it came up clean, without any 404 errors. So perhaps you fixed it already or maybe that software is triggering a false positive.  Either way your site came up really clean from a technical perspective — good job!
