10. Redirection!

Login to your google webmaster tools and choose your site. Select Crawls on the left hand side and click on crawl errors. This page shows you all the not found pages when google bots crawled your site. These can be from within your site or from external links. The links from within yoursite you should have fixed with the broken link checker. For those external links which you have no control error, redirect them to relevant pages instead of your 404 error page. Activate the plugin then select tools then redirection. Here you can add a 301 permanent redirect to a relevant page on your website or a temporary redirect until that page is back up. Either way a great plugin which will help you with your crawl errors.
