Google Giving 404 on Images.zip File

Andre Pfanz asked on January 10, 2017 14:42

We are using Kentico v9. Google is reporting a 404 on this URL of our site:

/CMSPages/GetResource.ashx?image=%5BImages.zip%5D%2F

Does anyone know why this is happening and how to correct it?

Correct, you can exclude as Jim mentions or I believe you can report this in Google's Webmaster Tools or I guess it's called Google Search Console.

Aa few things,

  • Is the file actually deployed on your site? It should reside in the /App_Themes/Default/Images directory.
  • Is there a reason you need to report this URL to Google?
  • Have you excluded the URL?

  • I did find Images.zip in the /App_Themes/Default/Images
  • No reason to report this to Google. I'm guessing Google is reporting it because of this Javascript:

    var CMS = CMS || {}; CMS.Application = { "isRTL": "false", "isDebuggingEnabled": false, "applicationUrl": "/", "imagesUrl": "/CMSPages/GetResource.ashx?image=%5bImages.zip%5d%2f", "isDialog": false };

  • How can this URL be excluded in Kentico?

Try adding following to the robots.txt file to keep Google from spidering the URL Disallow: /CMSPages/GetResource.ashx?image=%5BImages.zip%5D%2F
