We use Adobe Omniture and it creates an additional incorrect on click JavaScript link inside a link that adds a dash 1 to the end of each URL creating a 404. There’s no way to edit the code with Adobe’s software Will Google understand to follow the first URL and not the second one that has the dash 1?

JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

So I am not completely sure how this setup works. But, in general, if you have two links in there and we discover one of them goes to a 404 and the other one works then the one that works is the one that will work for us. So as long as you have at least one link that works, then I wouldn’t really worry about this. Obviously, this will create a lot of 404 errors in your Search Console account, so that makes it a bit harder for you to manage that part, but it shouldn’t cause any bigger problems otherwise. Maybe there are ways that you can chat with the Adobe folks to have that changed. Maybe this is just the limitation of their software.
