I am going through my 404 error pages on Google Webmaster "Crawl Errors" page. I see some very old pages that others linked to, but since then I had deleted them. The other sites are still linking to them, and so I will rebuild these pages and republish them as 404 Error pages so any visitors to these pages will be directed back to my home page, or the relevant page. I got this idea from this forum, so thanks to those who are responsible.
Here's where it gets interesting and causes me concern: I have a total of 26 crawl errors. From those, there are eight showing up as website pages using www.progresslanguage.com that I am absolutely sure I never consciously published. I simply do not know how they got there. I fudged the links so they wouldn't get hot-linked, because I don't want these URLS to get any recognition since I don't trust them.
The first one listed shows being published as...
URL / Detail / Linked from / Detected
h**p://www.progresslanguage.com/ampere17.html?yebije=44fb6091 / 404 (Not found) / 3 pages / Feb.12, 2012
The pages they are linked from are

I searched on this clean-mx thing and found our the owner is one Gerhard Recher - h**p://twitter.com/#!/CleanmxMalware
Another page says this site is "a spam and virus management system for mail servers"
A person on another page complains about this man and his tactics, h**p://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=20173
Mail servers? spam and virus?
How did my domain get a page with his links and other's links?
The remaining seven crawl errors show that they were published as...
All of these seven are being linked to from one place:
What is going on? Did I do something to allow these pages to be uploaded to the Internet from my public_html page? I looked and couldn't find anything. Does Blue Voda do business with this man, because the complainer says, "Through clean-mx.de, Gerhard sends out abuse reports to webhosts demanding they take down a site because of viruses or phishing, which most do, without asking any questions. This would probably be fine if the clean-mx abuse reports were 100% accurate."
Since BV is my webhost, I am curious.
Anyway, I'll fix the pages I trust that I put up, and leave these others alone until I understand what is going on.
Any ideas or help is appreciated, because I am absolutely lost here.
