We have a web design crew building a site. It's fairly large, but not
thousands of pages.
When I do a scan for broken links I get a few hundred.
Now, I've built sites before in html, no broken links.
When I looked at the scan results, most of the broken links are one little
The directory structure is such that there is a unique subdirectory for
almost every item, and in that subdirectory , another IMAGES directory where
that image would have to be placed in order for that 404 not to come up.
I've never seen anything like it.
When I asked why this is, the php fellow says he's using a redirect to fetch
that image ( mod_redirect). So, I used another scanner filtering out
redirects, which showed a cleaner scan.
Question is: Will the SE's 'see' all of these errors or is php different
than good ol html?
I'm trying to get this site to rank well in the SERP's but not sure if these
404's are legit or if I have a problem.
I don't do php, and need to know if the redirect story is true or bovine
