I am getting this error when trying to verify I am the owner of www.jjaystaxidermy.com.
It appears that the Web site jjaystaxidermy.com (or www.jjaystaxidermy.com) is returning an HTTP 2xx or 3xx status response code in the header of 404 pages.
We cannot verify a Web site that is configured this way because it allows anyone to verify themselves as the owner of your site. Please update your Web site server configuration to return 404 status codes in the headers for pages that do not exist. Once your site is configured this way then you can return and request a file name verification.
I would like to know how to resolve this. I have attempted to change my .htaccess file. Any help would be great. Thanks so much.
I read the thread and they said to post a new one for the same problems. I have checked and double checked my .htaccess and it is located in the correct place and linked to the correct page.
I read the entire LOCKED thread again and I have looked into all the resources listed within. If I don't get a green light it is going to hurt pretty badly. The It appears that the Web site jjaystaxidermy.com (or www.jjaystaxidermy.com) is returning an HTTP 2xx or 3xx status response code in the header of 404 pages is written horribly. No one and it seems even those in here has a clue to its tru meaning. Leads me to believe my header is messed up in my 404 page. www.jjaystaxidermy.com/there_is_no_spoon.html will link you to my custom 404 page. So the issue regarding my .htaccess file is resolved after many hours. Any actual help would be great.
I checked my status again today. Still the same. We are at the one week mark and still no answers on how I can solve this problem. Even google has already ranked my page and that process is forever slow. All I need is an explanation from someone as to what mcafee actually wants to see and no one seems to know.Message was edited by: jjay on 5/17/12 2:43:33 PM CDT

Have you actually contacted Site advisor to ask?

Yes I have contacted them. I have researched this issue countless hours. I have searched and found hundreds upon hundreds of site admin who are having this problem. It gives you the error and tells you to fix your header. It does not tell you what is actuallt wrong. All of the information out there points to a sites .htaccess file not directing to a proper 404 error - page not found. I followed the instructions as my 404's were being directed to a default page by my host. I created a .htaccess file and a custom 404 page. My site now directs 404 errors to the correct page as all before me said to do yet I still get the same response when I try to claim the page as mine. I understand that it is gray and not red but anyone I know with mcafee site advisor will not click any link if it is not green. I need to have a green to make sure I am getting all of the hits I can as my business depends on it.
