There is the index status in the webmaster tools that says a certain number let's say 100 index pages and then there the crawl errors that says let's say 600.
Then let's imagine that in the crawl error google has discovered 50 pages that it marked as crawl errors a few month ago.
Login in today I noticed that out of my 600 pages in the crawl errors I only had 550 listed and that the ones discovered a few months ago were not listed anymore.
However, the indexed status hasn't changed still at 100 ( which very close the the number of pages my website has ). Let's say my website has only 70 pages and in the index status it lists 100.
My question is the following :
In order to gain my ranking back and google to start trusting me again does my index status need to be down to 70 ( the exact number of pages my website has ) or do the 600 crawls errors need to be all fixed an dropped from the list and showing the number 0 ?
