    Default 404 Errors

    I have a blog on my website and get a lot of 404 errors for pages like phpmyadmin2.5, phpmyadim-2.4 etc etc. I'm wondering whether these are hurtung my site and if I should be concerned with them.

    If so is there and easy way to block all the similar pages in a robots file? There are so many of them it would be quite a file if I listed them all.

    Thoughts?

    <style type="text/css"> <!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } --> </style> Looks complicated indeed.. blocking pages with 404 errors may not be simple as we think.. First, we must understand why or how such errors occurred in order to determine its source and find a way out of that trouble..

    The Error 404 "Page not found" is the error page displayed whenever someone asks for a page that’s simply not available on your site. The reason for this is that there may be a link on your site that was wrong or the page might have been recently removed from the site. As there is no web page to display, the web server sends a page that simply says "404 Page not found".[/SIZE][/FONT]
    The 404 error message is an HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) standard status code. This "Not Found" response code indicates that although the client could communicate to the server, the server could not find what was requested or it was configured not to fulfill the request.

    Hi UPB,

    You should be concerned about these, from a search engine and usability perspective. Care to point me to your blog?

    There may be a few solutions to your issues, but of course we would have to work out how they are caused in the first place. Common solutions are as follows:


    1. There could be a pre-made add-on to solve your issue.
    2. If the 404 errors can't stop being generated then you may be able to change your phpmyadmin to make sure that all potential 404 errors are placed within a certain sub-directory and block this out with robots.txt.

    Solutions vary, show me the URL first and I will come up with a solution for you

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Thanks for your help!

    Below is a list of pages it says are 404 errors. I dont think a user would ever reach these, more worried about the search engines.

    Those are just scriptkiddies trying to get in the backdoor of your php possibly.

    I agree with Rick UPB, most likely a few kids trying (badly i may add) to exploit your PHP.

    I honestly wouldn't worry about search engines ever finding these pages.

    Google doesn't like too much javascript redirection. You might like to use 301 redirection instead to make use of lost traffic. This will be beneficial to your website.
