We are looking for someone to help us fix crawl errors we are seeing in our Google Search Console.
Specifically here's what is going on. We have an e-commerce website with many product pages. Each product page has links to 4-5 pop up windows (driven by a script that causes the pop up to open when link clicked) that have very specific information (ie. Size Scale, Returns/Exchange Policy, Question/Contact Us, International Shipping Info). What has happened is, somehow...Google is seeing those urls/links on the product page, and it's causing them for some reason to expect to see those urls at an address that is not defined on the page for them.
And it's giving us that 404 error but that url does not exist. And it's expecting it despite the url to the pop up being a absolute path url. For some reason Google is expecting it to exist. So we've got hundreds of crawl errors for urls just like that for various product pages, and also crawl errors related to the other informational popups we have on that screen, where Google is expecting to be able to reach a url that does not exist.
So we just need some help identifying what is causing this issue. Is it :
1. some coding of the pop up link on the product page template
2. maybe some coding in the pop up "script" in the header of the product page
3. maybe some data in our .htaccess file causes Google to expect those urls to be reachable
