Result Codes

When a request is made to your server for a page on your website (for instance, when a visitor accesses your page in a browser or when a spider crawls the page), your server returns a result code (also called an HTTP status code) in response to the request. This report item shows the most common codes returned by your server during the selected date range. Codes are grouped according to the list below:

  • 200-level codes - Indicate a successful return of data. 2xx codes are good.
  • 300-level codes - Indicate that the browser was redirected to another site resource. 3xx codes do not usually indicate a problem.
  • 400-level codes - Indicate that a resource was either not found or was denied for some reason. If you get many 4xx codes, it may be worth investigating the cause.
  • 500-level codes - Indicate that an error occurred while responding to the request. If you get many 5xx codes, it may be worth investigating the cause.

Note: This report can be added as a report item to a custom report. For more information on report items, refer to Understanding Report Items.
