    Will google be able to see see my pages??


    Guys,

    Someone bright solve this for me

    So my site is up and I'm optimising it for Google. I've run Traffic Blazer on it. It is finding 99 broken links on
    the sitemap page!!

    This is strange as all the links work on the site when viewing it on the net or locally. The sitemap is really
    just for the google spiders - most of the navigation on the site is via flash buttons so I decided that a
    textual sitemap for the spiders would be good and linked one from the index (main page) found below.

    www.britishcinemagreats.com

    If you go to the index (main page - above) and look in the bottom right hand corner you will see a small link
    called map. This will take you to the sitemap. All these links funtion on the web but Traffic Blazer says
    that they are broken EXTERNAL links.what?

    Called Traffic Blazer support who weren't very helpful. Can't understand why they function on the
    web but the optimisation software says they are (all) broken externals. Very worried that if the software
    thinks they are broken and the google spider can't navigate any other way...well I think I'm screwed.
    It will only find about 6 pages I think, maybe...

    Here is an example of what it states as a broken outgoing hyperlink.

    .htm

    I'm lost and any help would be appreciated as I fear whenever the google?? comes it will find no one at home!!

    Cheers

    PJ

    no problem


    I'm sure google will not have a problem at all. I've seen it successfully index directorys with 30 characters, and files with 40 characters in them.

    I suspect it will be just fine.

    try another tool


    I suggest your run the w3 validator tool on it.

    http://validator.w3.org/

    see what it has to say, if it says it's ok, then there no doubt google will think it's ok

    I think google won't have any problems. They are just normal text links.

    Damned broken links


    Still really concerned about these broken links. Ran the validator tool

    and it says the links are ok. So why would the software say they are
    broken?

    I mean if they are broken the site has no pages really. Bollocks

    Can you email google and ask them to check. I fear not?
