Generator displays 404 errors but they work
« on: April 03, 2012, 12:48:17 PM »
Hi,

We have a few (specific) websites that require a sitemap but when we try to make one it'll only use a few links and tell me the others are 404 pages. Every generator on the web does this, Our webhost is Godaddy but I doubt they're the cause, as there's websites that we can make complete sitemaps with aswell.

I've already tried using a delay time so it doesn't send out too much requests but it doesn't help.

I'm pretty sure it's the websites but I have no idea how to confirm this.. The links are;

[external links are visible to admins only]
[external links are visible to admins only]

Help would be very much appreciated!

Hello,

although content is displayed in browser, it sends 404 http header, which is incorrect. You should contact your site developer to fix this.

You'd need to contact your site developer for the specifics, there might be different reasons for this.

It seems the issue is with Godaddy (as usual).

It seems they think it's okay to filter put a filter on accounts of customers that do this. people have reported a 80% loss in site ranking/traffic and Godaddy just gives the standard response.

Guess I'll go mail them and hope for the best.

Thanks for your help, I wouldn't even have figured out this whole header thing without you!
