How Can You Fix These URL Crawl Errors when the data is basically all wrong as shown in Google Search Console Crawl Error Report? Well your guess is as good as mine because using remove URL’s won’t fix this because how you Google remove URL’s of web pages that do NOT exist?
Doing 301 redirection is also not appropriate because where can you redirect a page that no longer is on your site (perhaps was around 2 or 3 years ago?)
