    Verifying sitemap
    Although I had submitted the site map to Google for my Calendars.com site a while ago I decided to verify it this morning.
    I received the following error and I am not sure how to fix it
    " NOT VERIFIED
    We have detected that your 404 (file not found) error page returns a status of 200 (OK) in the header"

    Put this at the top of your 404 page's code (assuming PHP here):

    PHP Code:
     Header("HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found");

    Google Sitemaps "verify" fixed in next release of view.pl (after v5.09.02). FYI, you don't have to use Google's "verify" function; it does not affect how Google uses your Google Sitemaps.

    Google recently updated the sitemap area. Now a verified site can get some pretty useful information. I got around this by uploading the verification html page that is required. Changing the name of the htaccess file to ". htaccess". Clicking verify (it happens instantly) then immediately going back and changing the htaccess back to its proper name. It can be done with only about a minute of downtime.

    Yes, creating the verification file and temporarily turning off .htaccess will work. The next view.pl will handling the verification process automatically.
