Trouble with AOL Search

      No Comments on Trouble with AOL Search

Lately, I get lots of 404 traffic to SciFan from AOL Search. Seems they mess with the "?" and "=" in links to my dynamic pages. I’m tuning my custom 404 page to redirect these users to the proper pages, but I’m wondering, is anyone else noticing that problem?
03/06/03 update: well, not only AOL Search, but their other online properties as well, such as Netscape and Compuserve. Yes, some people still do use these, and I was getting dozens of broken links from them every day. That’s quite easy to fix, so if you have a site that gets significant traffic, check your stats and tune your 404 page to catch up and redirect those visitors to where they wanted to go in the first place.
