Sh17ty Maintenance IV

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

  • I checked Google’s Webmaster Tools and saw a lot of 404 errors dealing with */Unknown
    • I don’t know what’s going on or why Google wants to add /Unknown to every link it finds. So I’m going to leave it alone for now.
  • I have my 404 error page set up to email me whenever it gets hit and there’s always tons of favicon.ico errors so I finally figured out the solution.
    • In my headers.php file I changed
      <link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”favicon.ico” >
      to
      <link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”http://www.thesh17.com/favicon.ico” >
    • Pretty easy fix. I was almost tempted to create a .htaccess rule to redirect all favicon.ico requests to that file until I realized it was my fault for not using an absolute path.
  • There’s a lot of 404 errors that look like this : http://www.thesh17.com/wp/2007/04/17/hot-fuzz-from-the-people-who-made-shaun-of-the-dead/feed:http://www.thesh17.com/comments/feed/
    • I don’t know how to fix this really. It only showed up recently so I’m hoping it’s just someone’s broken browser. As far As I can tell all links to comment feeds are correct and working.
  • The following pages were reported as not being reachable but work fine now.
  • There’s 272 urls being restricted by the robots.txt file and it cut my supplementary indexed pages down a lot. There’s 283 pages indexed by Google now.
  • Disabled the Shoutbox on the sidebar.
  • Removed the tag and category pages from the sitemap.xml file since they were being blocked by robots.txt anyway.
  • Disabled the Text Link Ads plugin.
  • Removed the Vizu Poll in the sidebar.

There’s some other things I did too, but I was bored and felt like listing these.
