I'm reviewing my GWT web crawl error sources (the links that result in a 404 error). I looks at these source sites. Lots of them are zombie scraper sites. I mean that someone registered a dropped domain name, and put a bunch of content and links on the site from other websites including mine. Some of sources have an old link to my website that results in a 404 Not Found error.
Do you recommend that I do a 301 redirect to the good URL on my site? Do these sites give link juice? Or, the opposite: will Google penalize my site because they might recognize the source as a scraper site?
