Google Webmaster Tool Error

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 3949094 posted 10:09 am on Jul 9, 2009 (gmt 0)


I'm in big dilemma. My site has around 130 to 180 broken links which I'd fixed by giving redirect to it on my homepage. Then after my broken links began to decline and now it is 0.

I rarely checked my webmaster tool account. Just today only when I login in my account i found that google says that I need to verify my site they are displaying "We've detected that your 404 (file not found) error page returns a status of 200 (Success) in the header."

And after that I'd created a new sitemap and uploaded the same but when I checked online to know whether it is working fine or not it is returning to the homepage.

I dont know what is happening may be it not getting that sitemap code page or Should i remove that redirect? I have tried so many times but it is repeating the same problem.

Anybody here please help me as to what would be the exact error?

It sounds like any incorrect url now redirects to your home page - and that means that no url (even total nonsense) ever gets a true 404 response from your server. Is that the situation?
