rconner Posted February 6, 2009 Share Posted February 6, 2009 This one is new to me (maybe not to others): tracking URL This is the usual network-markering-guru BS. Spammer refers me to a URL at go2-url.com, which reports 404 status in the header, but which actually imports the spam pitch from some other website (hosted by our pals at theplanet.com) using a FRAMESET. Clearly, go2-url is not playing by Hoyle. They are reporting that a resource is not found (404) when it manifestly was found. In fact, in other cases, I've seven seen them use the 404 page to advertise how you can exploit 404 pages to stuff them with ads. If this sort of thing catches on, you will no longer be able to trust 404s to mean that websites are offline. -- rick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
