Camping World RV Error Page SEO Failing

Camping World RV Error Page SEO Failing

First thing I noticed from the Camping World RV Sales Google site: search were indexed pages with number based titles, few examples:

1510022 RVs for Sale – Camping World RV Sales
1670374 RVs for Sale – Camping World RV Sales
1676576 RVs for Sale – Camping World RV Sales
1676072 RVs for Sale – Camping World RV Sales
1664177 RVs for Sale – Camping World RV Sales
1691842 RVs for Sale – Camping World RV Sales
1690988 RVs for Sale – Camping World RV Sales

Looks like there are THOUSANDS of results like these!

I’m going to ignore the fact these are terrible title tags since they are all 404 error pages, but if these weren’t error pages these title tags would be a major SEO problem.

Opening these webpages gave a sort of error page (it’s actually the Camping World RV sub-domain custom 404 Error webpage), these pages ideally wouldn’t be indexed, at least not in these numbers. Even without understanding precisely why these pages exist there are at least two possible SEO solutions to solve SOME of these error pages.

301 redirects or canonical URLs, which to use depends on why they exist.

Your local dealership may not have what you are looking for, but your Personal RV Shopper is standing by ready to access more than 25,000 RVs to find your perfect camper.

The first question is, are these 404 error pages indexed because there used to be an RV with a specific stock number (that’s what the numbers are, stock numbers), but the stock item no longer exists (the RV was sold) or are they indexed by mistake due to a failing in the websites design resulting in links to non-existent webpages which should never have been linked to.

I’m reasonably confident it’s the latter.
