Co-op Link URL formatting

    Just noticed about 6 404 errors for one particular page and think it is coming from links in the co-op. I logged in and checked the URL in my account and it is fine. I have seen a few variations of bad links. I did find one of the referring pages and it was a network link page on some other site. The /'s appear to get moved around, in this one instance the above URL looked like www.sandiegoincomeproperty.com//fireislandfire-island-rental.html

    Any ideas?

    The URLs are not reformatted, so if someone chooses to run an ad to a bad URL, there really is nothing stopping them (just like you can invalid URLs for an AdWords campaign if you want).

    Not anymore actually... They've got this slow almost-Overture-like validation system now since a few weeks. Even the smallest typo/creative writing gets denied too.

    Back on topic...

    Right, I realize you don't validate the URLs (which would probably be a nice feature add-on).

    Here is what I saw. You tell me what you think.

    This page: http://headsetplus.com/category3/product52/product_info.html

    was the referrer for http://www.sandiegoincomeproperty.com//fireislandfire-island-rental.html

    That page is displaying co-op ads on the bottom of the page.

    The URL for the link this looks like, is http://www.sandiegoincomeproperty.com/fireisland/fire-island-rental.html
    which works fine.

    I received another 4 or 5 of these over the weekend.
