Hi all, is it possible to send Slurp a 404 when requesting domain.com but send the normal page when requesting www.domain.com?

thanks
Frank

Frank,

Yes, but Slurp never was any good with 404s -- it just keeps asking for them, sometimes for more than a year. A better bet is to redirect all requests for your non-www domain to your www domain, and prevent this problem from happening in the first place. Thankfully, slurp understands 301s better than it understands 404s and 410s.

I see Slurp generating 2-300+ 301's each day on just one of our servers, and it's been doing that for at least a year with no sign of learning.

I complained at one point when it made >100 requests for one robots.txt file in 24 hours - they said it was 'unavoidable' because the spider is 'distributed'. How can you reason with that? ;)
