Yes, if you are still here: kgstiles.com/essentialoilsbasicgift and kgstiles.com/ridmoreinfo both show 404's in Google webmaster tools, but an http header check show them as 200 All Good

comment Is there a general rule of thumb for which browsers to optimize your site for?
Under 5% and we want it to work but only if it doesn't entail significant additional work for us (else recommend upgrading). Layout issues are entirely ignored if they do not impede functionality. Under 2% and we consider it as being "not supported" and recommend people upgrade if there are complaints.

For browser that are considered "current" (most recent release of a browser that is still actively supported), we try to ensure that our sites always work. We do not, however, test in browsers that have less than 10% of our traffic (in practice this means testing in latest versions of IE, Firefox and Chrome, we've recently also started testing in Safari on MacOS and iPad). For older versions, once the total share goes under 10% we stop caring if everything looks perfect, but we still want it to work. (Fortunately, IE6 no longer falls in this category)

Hey thanks for the input. I think I will put a banner at the bottom saying it is optimized for ie8. I suppose I could consider myself lucky that so few people using my site use ie6 and 7. 1.3% does seem pretty insignificant and I'm a little relieved I don't really need to. The site I am working on now has been the most difficult to optimize for different browsers in general.

yes, these are pretty close and that gave me some valuable info. Thanks Anagio. According to the answer in this question, ie7 would fall into the "not supported" category (as under 2%).
