While overlooking my failure reports via management control panel for my web site I am having a very large amount of failures for animate.js

Any ideas as to why? I'm thinking since my navigation buttons use rollovers browsers that don't support javascript are causing these errors?

I am also getting a fair amount of errors for robots.txt
Any ideas? I know robots.txt is used to exclude pages from being spidered by search engines but I don't even have a robot.txt file?

Thanks

Hello tthach2, Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

It appears that maybe the animate.js file is in the wrong directory. Usually that file needs to reside in the same directory where the page is that uses the animate.js. Wherever that call for the animate.js is, I'm wondering if the animation is working or not. If there is a 404 error for the animate.js file, that usually means it is not where it should be and that the animation is not functioning.

The robots.txt requests are coming from spidering robots. Most will first check to see if you have a robots.txt, if not, a 404 page will be returned (page not found). You can eliminate those errors by building a robots.txt file and placing it in the root directory.

... or use the full path to the file in every call.

Thanks for the responses. Will not creating a robots.txt file have any negative search engine effects?

Also a "/undefined" error has taken the number one spot in my failure reports. Any ideas as to the cause?

Thanks
