comment Can an HTTP status 400 be a substitute for a 410?
@AnubianNoob: "Gone" is, more properly, a subset of "Not Found"; if it's gone, it's not there to be found any more. Indeed, the 410 Gone status code was added in HTTP/1.1 basically as a more specific and emphatic version of 404, to let servers explicitly indicate that a formerly valid resource has been deliberately and permanently removed (as opposed to, say, just being accidentally or temporarily inaccessible).

+1, agreed. A "404 Not Found" response would also be a valid choice here.

comment How do I bulk delete data in DHIS2 that has been entered via data entry forms
Why was this migrated to webmasters.SE? Even after looking at the site, I'm still not 100% sure what DHIS2 is, but it doesn't appear to be a tool for webmasters.

comment If I remove files extensions from URL but my canonical tags point to the URL with the extension, does that matter?
What do you mean by "use .htaccess to remove the file extensions"? Do you mean a) an internal rewrite, so that a user who visits example.com/awesome-page will receive the content of awesome-page.html, b) an external rewrite, so that a user who visits example.com/awesome-page.html will get an HTTP 301 redirect to example.com/awesome-page, or c) both?

comment Why am I getting cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi coming up when I browse my webpage?
@T9b: If you're running your own nameservers, you would edit their config files. If someone else is hosting your DNS for you (more likely), then you'd typically use their config panel. For more specific instructions, first find out which DNS software / host you're using, and look for its documentation.

comment How to disallow HTTP 302 redirects from another site to mine
If you told us more about why you want to disallow this traffic, someone might be able to suggest an alternative way to accomplish the same goal.

comment Make Google index over 90,000 user profiles
If you don't actually track when the profiles have been last modified in your database, I'd strongly suggest leaving the <lastmod> field out, instead of using a dummy date like in this example code. At best, there will be no difference; at worst, lying about when your pages were last modified can cause crawlers to miss changes (if the date is too old) or waste time inefficiently recrawling pages that haven't changed (if it's too new). Of course, the best option would be to actually store a last modification timestamp for each profile in the database, and report it in the sitemap.
