    Do you still have the default category named uncategorized?

    If you renamed it, then yeah, the URL will return 404.

    You can either forward (301 re-direct) that URL to somewhere else (to avoid the 404 error) or tell Google to forget about that URL as it doesn’t exist anymore (do it in your Google search console).

    Thanks for the reply! Yeah, my default category is still Uncategorized, I haven’t renamed it. Looking in the search console I noticed that the error first appeared only a few days after my last post where I forgot to set a custom category and it was defaulted to Uncategorized. I’m not sure if there’s any connection between the 404s and the new post.
