Web Crawl Stats - 404 (Not found)

Discussion in 'Google' started by maldives, Dec 24, 2008.

    A number of pages from one of my website is showing 404 not found message in google webmaster tool. The pages do exist correctly and there are no problems with robots.txt file.

    Can anyone tell me possible other reasons why the pages are not found and how to correct the issue?

    Page taking too long to load could be one.

    Thanks all for the feedback. I am not sure of the links use any redirects. It still confuses me.

    Nope redirects wont affect... Once something like this happened to me, because some server side script is blocking access to the Web page if "user-agent" attribute of "http request header" is null...
