Help! Link checker says all my Amazon links are bad. Server problem? (3 posts)

    I used a link checker which said that every one of my Amazon links is bad, and they all have the same problem: "The server does not allow HEAD requests"

    Here's an example.http://alanrinzler.com/blog/2008/06/26/how-guy-kawasaki-got-his-cover-for-art-of-the-start-qa/

    I've looked online for help and can't find situation duplicated.

    Could someone take a look at the page above and see what might be wrong? I wasn't able to get Amazon's own affiliate link setup to work for me and it was very time consuming. So after some research, I found that I could just copy/paste the Amazon product number into my affiliate code. I checked with Amazon help and they said the links on my site looked fine to them.

    Can someone help? How can I fix this? What results from this problem? Any help will be much appreciated!

    The Amazon links look valid and they open proper pages.

    Which link checker did you use?
    Anyway, the HEAD requests are for robots only. I guess you are not going to sell anything to robots, are you?

    Hi and thanks for responding. I used this validator: http://validator.w3.org/checklink

    It gives me a long frightening list of invalid links, in bright red. How do I fix them?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.
