comment posting data from txt file array to web page
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's programming related and does not contain enough information to be migrated to Stack Overflow.

Small tip: You don't need the parenthesis around the RewriteRule pattern unless you are using a backreference (eg. $1) in the substitution. ie. (.*) is the same as .*.

comment When will google report correct results with its fetch tool?
@closetnoc The file extension really should not have anything to do with indexing. The internet does not work on file extensions; it works on mime-types. There are images indexed that do not have a file extension. (Difficult to find admittedly, because most people use file extensions; but they are there.)

comment When will google report correct results with its fetch tool?
Although the error in the question is the result of requesting an image URL directly using the tool - this has nothing to do with HTML, CSS and JS files. Have you tried passing a URL of the form /path/to/image.jpg (ie. an image) to the "Fetch as Google" tool?

comment When will google report correct results with its fetch tool?
Well, you might think, but have you tried? The tool is really designed for fetching pages and it's associated resources (when doing a "Fetch and Render") - not images directly. If I try to request an image directly (one that is publicly available and not blocked by robots.txt etc) I get the same generic "Error" as the OP. Personally I think this is by design - although the "Error" could be a lot more helpful.

Can you successfully request an image-URL using the "Fetch as Google" tool?

comment When will google report correct results with its fetch tool?
I don't think the "Fetch as Google" tool is intended to be used on images? I get the same generic "Error" if I attempt to directly request a publicly available image. But then it's not the standard "Googlebot" that is responsible for indexing images, it's the "Googlebot-Image"-bot.

"your request body is at least 10.4 KB" - or exactly 17095 B (16.7 KB) as stated in the Content-Length header. ;) +1

comment Friendly URLs with .htaccess
"My links look like this: /index.php?a=track&id=3" - The current directive in your .htaccess file already suggests otherwise?! .htaccess is only half the story when creating friendly URLs, you need to make sure the URLs are already friendly in your application.

comment 406 Not Acceptable response
Even if max_input_vars was exceeded, it should not result in a 406 (you get a trappable PHP warning). This sounds like it could be a mod_security (or GoDaddy server) issue? Is mod_security enabled on your account? Do you have access to customize or disable this in your control panel?

Glad you got it working (the first part at least). If this sufficiently answered the question then please mark it as accepted (click the "tick" on the left) to remove it from the unanswered question queue. Please feel free to ask another question regarding your other redirects/regex.

comment Create redirect from url like www.example.us/?p=100&option=
Is there are relationship between the old and new URLs? Your example code seems to suggest that /p=NNN maps to NNN.php - however, this does not correlate to the URL example at the top (where p=100 seems to map to blog.php?p=2792)? Is p=NNN (or id= or catid=) the only part of the old URL that matters?

comment Indexing images in google search for all users to find website while avoiding image theft
It really depends what these images are and what they are used for if watermarking would be suitable, but a visual "watermark" would be some kind of pattern/logo that affects the entire image, whilst still being "viewable" - it's not something that can be trivially cropped from the image. You would allow Google/bots to index a low quality(?) (perhaps non watermarked if only low quality) image and have the higher quality (watermarked) image on your website.

comment Huge discrepancies in analytics/traffic data between GAnalytics and BItly?
It's possible that Twitter itself is interfering with the link, but then bit.ly wouldn't register a click. But, are we looking at the same metric... "clicks on a bitlink" (which probably does not differentiate bots and multiple clicks) vs Sessions in GA? For reference: Is traffic coming from URL shorteners treated as direct?

comment Huge discrepancies in analytics/traffic data between GAnalytics and BItly?
@nyuen Whilst there are striking similarities between that article's report and the data in the question and there may well be something in it, some of the claims in that article don't seem to make a whole lot of sense IMO. "redirecting the URL from the bit.ly link to the yoursite.com link, the source gets lost and is seen simply as a direct visit" - this is false. bit.ly issues a standard 301 redirect so it is up to the browser to resend the referer and make the request, not bit.ly. In fact, the target of the link (ie. GA) should not even be able to detect that bit.ly was used.
