404 in logs

I hate 404s. I use awstats to watch my logs, and I hate when it shows some 404s…

I can tolerate some virus-generated URLs but when I see this “/feed%3Ahttp%3A//eyedmax.com/feed/“or search bot asking me for robots.txt or favicon.ico (and I haven’t one) – I can blow up.

My advices to all webmasters are following:

  • put all common files (including index.html, robots.txt and favicon.ico) to your site
  • validate the code for “strange” URLs
  • analyze log files
  • use the automatically generated site map

Don’t trouble Google ’till Google troubles you!
