Use this server header check tool to validate the server settings for your web site. This tools allow you to inspect HTTP and HTTPS headers that the web server returns when requesting a URL. For the benefit of search engine indexing there are several response codes you should carefully inspect.
- Status Codes:
- 200 OK: The requested resource was successful.
- 301 Moved: The requested resource has permanently moved to a new location.
(This is the search engine friendly method to redirect)
- 302 Found: The requested resource has temporarily moved.
(This method has recently been associated with some black hat SEO tactics. You may want to investigate further if your server responds with this code.)
- 307 Temporary Redirect: The requested resource resides temporarily under a different URI. Since the redirection MAY be altered on occasion, the client SHOULD continue to use the Request-URI for future requests. This response is only cacheable if indicated by a Cache-Control or Expires header field.
- 401 Unauthorized: The request requires user authentication. The response MUST include a WWW-Authenticate header field containing a challenge applicable to the requested resource.
- 404 Not Found: The requested resource was not found and a new location is not known.
