While blogging we create many content and publish posts regularly. Sometimes we delete post due to error and outdated. Sometimes we publish post about SEO and after SEO rules change we delete the content from our Blog. Beside of this sometime I found a problem that after publishing the post only one post showing in my blog homepage and other post are showing on next page. So I delete that post and publish again for solving this issue. But after deleting Blog link Blogger won't notice that delete link still available on Google Search engine and cache. So visitors maybe find this link on search engine and if they click on that link then in your Blog it will display 404 error page with page not found message. And instantly Google count this link as crawl error. And a notification will send in Google Webmaster tools account under crawl error section. So for avoiding this kinds of problem you have to remove the link from Google search result and cache page thus new visitors can't click on deleted content or post link.
