Server behavior5.4

No404 page

YesCompression

  • This website does not return a 404 error HTTP status code for missing pages. This is bad because search engines like Google might mistake this for a real page of content.
  • This website was served with GZIP encoding. This is very good because it reduces the loading time of a web page.
  • This website returns page content with or without a trailing slash on the URLs. Search engines might see these as separate pages with duplicate content which they could penalise for.
  • This website uses a temporary (HTTP 302) redirect from http://familysearch.org to http://www.familysearch.org. This is OK, but a permanent (HTTP 301) redirect is considered best practice.
    • If possible, change the temporary redirect to a permanent (HTTP 301) redirect.
