Google and Status Codes File Format: Unrecognized - View as HTML jojo88
My site that has been around for a long time never has been listed properly with Google. Under the listing it says.
File Format: Unrecognized - View as HTML
I checked my log file and Googlebot comes to the robots.txt file and recieved a 200 message. But when it comes to the any other page it does not recieve a status code at all. Could this be the problem?
go to google and search for "html check" with quotes. I would check the html to see what the problems are. shanbr
Anyone know of a free place that also helps you fix the coding.
With all the advertisments and other programs I buy, I just can't afford another $60 fee while sites are slow.
there are many, go to google and type "html check" with the quotes. Span
It looks like your pages are not served as text/html. Try a header viewer like [ ] delorie.com WebmasterWorld has one too, but I can't find it.. shanbr
Ok, i'll check again. I can only find ones that let you know you have problems here here and here but none that tell you how to fix without joining. lars
Try the search terms: "html validator"
These results list many free validation resources.
[ ...] for HTML validation. validator.w3.org
...] for CSS validation. jigsaw.w3.org encyclo
Welcome to WebmasterWorld, jojo88.
The problem is related to the mime type of the page, rather than a validation problem. Your pages should be being served with the mime type "text/html".
If you click on Control Panel in the menu at the top of this page, then go to the Server Headers option in the left-hand menu. Enter your site address, and you should get something resembling this:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK Date: Sat, 14 Aug 2004 20:14:06 GMT Server: Apache/1.3.31 (Unix) X-Powered-By: PHP/4.3.8 Connection: close Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1
Then post what you get in this thread (masking any references to your site, if any).
