HTTP Status: 404 on Pages that aren't 404


#1

Hi there,

when checking HTTP Status Codes with SEOTools for Excel it responds with "404 Not Found" for certain pages suddenly.

Examples:
https://www.witt-weiden.de/ - 200
https://www.witt-weiden.de/359980 - 200
https://www.witt-weiden.de/inspiration-bh-berater - 200
https://www.witt-weiden.de/damenmode - 200
https://www.witt-weiden.de/roecke - 404
https://www.witt-weiden.de/schuerzen - 404
https://www.witt-weiden.de/damen-shirtjacken - 404
https://www.witt-weiden.de/damen-shirts - 404

The 404-Pages are all from the same pagetype but don't know what could be the reason.
First I thought it's because SeoTools adds a trailing slash to all URLs and we changed the behavior to 404 on trailing-slash-variants. But then URLs like https://www.witt-weiden.de/inspiration-bh-berater should also send an 404-Error and that's not the case.

Any Ideas someone? @nielsbosma ?

Thanks

That is weird, I get correct results:

The 404 page seems to be broken:

@diskborste Thanks for checking the pages. I made a 2nd test from another pc with new SeoTools-Installation and it worked as well.

Now I reinstalled SeoTools on my main pc - but this time with deleting all AppData and now it works fine again. Seems like I had a misconfiguration in my SeoTools.config.xml.

@nielsbosma Maybe you could add the deletion of the AppData when using the "remove"-function in the Install Wizard?
