Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I have gotten a feeling of paranoia recently, with regard to Goog...
I run a clean site. It is a large, informational site. Sure, I have links to Amazon and such where appropriate, but I make most of my income from ads. My site is deep, with about 110K main topics covered.
My problem is that my CMS is a little to smart for me- it returns an error page... but that page is a 200!No, that won't work. Will further complicate the situation. You need to return the 404 status code. After that you can still have some content on that page explaining what the error was. jdMorgan explains it in this thread here [webmasterworld.com]. Basically, you need to precede any output of your script with
. Find the line that executes
print ("Status: 404 Not Found\n");
and make sure that the line that contains the 404 status executes before it.
print ("Content-Type: text/htm\n\n");
So I am using my same data, but presenting it in a new way. The ultimate animal pages are still the same.... but I now have "Omnivore" pages and "Africa" pages to augment the natural "Mammal >> Species >>>" hierarchy.
I think Tedster has it right when he calls it "faceted navigation"...
