5xx errors is caused by server issues that prevent a page from loading. These errors can result in a negative user experience, lowering search engine rankings, or causing Google deindexation.

The 5xx category of HTTP status codes contains errors that occur when the server is unable to respond to a legitimate HTTP request from a client. In short, there was no problem on the client's end, but the server was still unable to process the request. When your client connects with a server to access a web page, these errors occur at the end of the request-response period.

It is difficult to detect and correct each occurrence of these errors, but search engines, especially 500 and 503 errors, dislike them. Google Search engines can remove your site from their index if they receive such a response on a regular basis. Using SEO tools to inspect your site and spot 5xx errors in real-time to avoid deindexing. 

There are three techniques for fixing errors:

  • Reload the site page to see if the problem was just temporary.
  • Examine the site's error log.
  • Consider any recent improvements or enhancements to the system, and roll them back until the problem is resolved.

Hi @wemondeindia

5XX errors specify problems with the server. 

Similar to 4XX errors, 5XX errors would create unpleasant user experiences and high bounce rates - which has been rumoured within SEO community to affect ranking. 

So yes, it can indirectly affect your ranking and I'd advise that you fix it as soon as possible. 

Let me know my answer is of any help with a thumb up or like 😄
