Google reevaluated its algorithym around 29/08/05 and dropped my site from its listings. Suposivly doorway pages caused them to drop me . i rectifyed this and also put a google sitemap on my server for www.paragonhandyman.co.uk.
GOOGLE recrawled, all is ok and ask me to verify by loading the folowing empty file to the server
all is done and GOOGLE now says it cant verify because:
Weve detected that your 404 (file not found) error page returns a status of 200 (OK) in the header.
this configuration presents a security risk for site verification and therefore, we cant verify your site. If your web server is configured to return a status of 200 in the header of 404 pages, and we enabled you to verify your site with this configuration, others would be able to take advantage of this and verify your site as well. This would allow others to see your site statistics. To ensure that no one can take advantage of this configuration to view statistics to sites they dont own, we only verify sites that return a status of 404 in the header of 404 pages.
so how do i get the error page to return 404
Do I need to change my host/
