    This is an easy mistake to make, though a mighty embarassing one. The (large) website I work for had this very same problem recently. If your error pages don’t return the correct HTTP response code, Google’s search spiders will repeatedly hit them trying to follow links it shouldn’t be (members-only pages, broken links from external sites, any links during a site outage, etc). Thus, the top page quickly becomes an error page. Whoops.

    I complained to them that their wireless site doesn’t show that I’m using ssl when I login, regardless of whether the prefix is http or https. From the response, I think they fired all their web developers a long time ago.

    Thank you for contacting Verizon Wireless through our website.

    I received your email regarding the online security and I am happy to assist you.
