    Site Map LHF / CFB
    I have submited a few sitemaps to G and all is good untill I verify. When I goto use the method they want to verify I get the following error.

    We've detected that your 404 (file not found) error page returns a status of 200 (OK) in the header ...

    Thus the site/map cannot be verified.

    Now I use a subdomain I am getting SE traffic and I use the .htaccess file to redirect to home page. I also get this with the CFB script.

    Any work around?

    That "404 returns 200" error does not interfere with the processing of your Google Sitemaps. It just prevents you from looking at the "stats" report. That report shows if any of the URL's were unreachable during crawling.

    You can still view the "Sitemap Status" column to determine the status of processing, such as "OK" or "pending".

    The next version of view.pl (higher than v5.07.22) fixes this problem. It will be released shortly.
