    Response code help

    On my sites statistics it includes:

    Hits by response code

    Code 200-Ok 1435
    Code 206-Partial content 3
    Code 301-Moved permanently 3
    Code 302-Found 3
    Code 304-Not modified 168
    Code 404-Not found 52

    I'm thinking "Ok" is good, but "not found" sounds like a broken link, but I can't find a broken link?

    This is the site

    Thanks

    I guess it could come down to someone's ISP on the blink for a second, and making the users refresh to get the rest of the page... either that or you have a spacer image or something daft that you've forgotten to upload

    Could it not also be as a result of someone trying to navigate to a nonexistent page, like by typing "www.yoursite.com/secretAdminArea.asp" in their browser?

    Possible...

    @Spudhead,

    that can be a cause, but on a hand-coded page (wysiwig editors usually maintain the links themselves) a unobtrusive typo in a link href can result in pages not found as well.

    @Skippy_421,

    don't your statistics specifically list which page requests resulted in 404's?
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    As said, snoopy people or bots. Don you have a robots.txt? Do you have a favicon.ico? Maybe 52 people using IE bookmarked your page and you don't have a favicon!

    Aye, that could explain it. Using Konqueror, it looks for the favicon on every site/page you open with it, whether it's bookmarked or not.

    I don't know what "robots.txt" or "favicon.ico" are? So I'm thinking I don't have them!

    Is there a thread in this forum that covers those?

    @ Ronaldb66,
    My site is on jumpline.com, don't see any stats that tell me which page requests result in 404's, but the favicon.ico issue above probably is my solution.

    Thanks

    http://www.favicon.com

    robot.txt is a txt file which a search engine 'bot will look for. You don't really need it though,
