404 Tag Not Found Error

I have three sites, one, essentialreading.freecluster.eu the tags work porfectly, the other two, they return the above error, please see the image below the error messages. All three sites are set up exactly the same.

The two sites, I have had to unpublish the tag module, but the sites are reprieveoutput.freecluster.eu and reprievemediacic.epizy.com

how can I get the tags to work on all of my sites..

  • Can any admin shine a light on why this is happening? It's not a PHP error, it's like a dodgy redirect, it's looking for the tags, but it can't access them.. Any ideas??

  • I'd love to help you with this, but I have no idea where to start. I have very little experience with Joomla and I'm not familiar with it's tags functionality. If someone with more Joomla experience can help boil this down to a hosting issue, I can look into it.

    With that in mind, you may wish to ask this question on something like StackOverflow or the Joomla forums instead. They'll know more about Joomla and what could cause this issue. If it turns out to be a hosting problem, you can ask the question here again so we can address the hosting issue itself.

    Fair enough, thanks for the clarification.. It might be something to do with how google is crawling my site, I don't have any idea whatsoever, but it's saying to contact the system administrator, and that is you guys isn't it.. This is interesting.. I am getting access denied, as in the image..

    C) Access denied

    Access denied means Googlebot can’t crawl the page. Unlike a 404, Googlebot is prevented from crawling the page in the first place.
    What they mean

    Access denied errors commonly block the Googlebot through these methods:

    You require users to log in to see a URL on your site, therefore the Googlebot is blocked
    Your robots.txt file blocks the Googlebot from individual URLs, whole folders, or your entire site
    Your hosting provider is blocking the Googlebot from your site, or the server requires users to authenticate by proxy
    

    Are they important?

    Similar to soft 404s and 404 errors, if the pages being blocked are important for Google to crawl and index, you should take immediate action.

    If you don’t want this page to be crawled and indexed, you can safely ignore the access denied errors.
    How to fix

    To fix access denied errors, you’ll need to remove the element that's blocking the Googlebot's access:

    Remove the login from pages that you want Google to crawl, whether it’s an in-page or popup login prompt
    Check your robots.txt file to ensure the pages listed on there are meant to be blocked from crawling and indexing
    Use the robots.txt tester to see warnings on your robots.txt file and to test individual URLs against your file
    Use a user-agent switcher plugin for your browser, or the Fetch as Google tool to see how your site appears to Googlebot
    Scan your website with Screaming Frog, which will prompt you to log in to pages if the page requires it
    

    While not as common as 404 errors, access denied issues can still harm your site's ranking ability if the wrong pages are blocked. Be sure to keep an eye on these errors and rapidly fix any urgent issues.

    Hold on, I'm a bit confused now. You start your topic by saying some URLs don't work, and now you're talking about Google crawler issues? What is the problem you're trying to address exactly?

    As to who is the system administrator, that depends on what is considered the "system". If the "system" is the Joomla installation, then that would make you the system administrator.

  • When I click on a tag, I get 404 errors, if you look at the image, it gives a list of possible reasons, an out of date search engine, google cannot crawl my site, possibly.. The system administrator would be where the files are stored, no, it's not like I can access them is it, I don't know how to fix it, it's clearly nothing I am doing, as one of my sites works properly, and the other two don't, all three are set up in exactly the same way. I have no explanation for it.. My tags are there, but for some reason they wont display, with this 404 error, so I have had to hide the modules..

  • when you visit the link reprievemediacic.epizy.com/index.php/component/tags/tag/opportunities

    it makes the redirection to "EN" http://reprievemediacic.epizy.com/index.php/en/component/tags/tag/opportunities

    maybe that's why 404 error

    Besides, you have unnecessary hops
    page requires 1 additional round trips to load render blocking resources and 0.1 MB to fully render. The median page requires 4 round trips and 2.7 MB.

    Incredible work mate, cheers, the bad news is, I don't understand any of it haha, at the minute, my tag module display is disabled on that site, so that might be why, the bit regarding hops, I don't get, I understand the file path bit though, how can I stop that, I use Joomla, it kinda does it all itself, I wouldn't know what to change..

  • It is possible that it is either deleted or unpublish but still leads to this "non-existent page"
    and probably because of that 301 and 404 errors appear

    it is possible that access is not set to public

    View all settings - if you do not understand what some setting is doing try on google

    did u need yoomla? such a site can be easily and without much trouble
    write as ordinary static html and served

    redirection would mean
    the visitor comes to your homepage
    then suddenly follow the instructions to serve the page on ENG
    when it comes to that localized site for the English language
    there is a call for pluggin http://reprievemediacic.epizy.com/index.php?option=com_ajax&plugin=arktypography&format=json

    and then because that plugin is not with the EN in url
    this plugin is called again but this time with EN in url.
    etc.

    the user's browser is driven from one redirect to the other
    several times before displaying the page at last

    I'm sorry I can not offer you a special answer as a click here and there and everything will work

    you should use the elimination method until you get the answer

    I'm getting it, slowly but surely, I'm new to hosting, regarding Joomla, it's what I learnt with, so I tend to stick with it, although I do find it frustrating, is there like a more user friendly method of creating html sites these days then, rather than entering all the code yourself, I would like more flexibility regarding fonts I use etc, rather than be restricted with Joomla's templates, that's for sure.. The re - directs, I tested the FB login page, and mine had less than that haha, so I can live with them, I just want everything I click on to work..

    Oh XML Sitemaps for Google, what gives with them? My generator seems to just register one link, and I have multiple links, but they are baffling me as well to be honest haha..

    The EN could be the key, I keep getting warnings my site is a multi language site, but I can't find the setting for it anywhere in Joomla, that is why the EN is there, for English.. My site is not multi language whatsoever..

  • ** My generator seems to just register one link** - The problem is that such online sitemap generators are blocked here by the security soft

    once and if you have a static web site
    you can easily download it all from the user folder
    then use some local (offline) sitemap generator.exe
    and give it the local path (folder) to index
    then check and upload generated xml files (normal + mobile sitemaps) in root of your website

    ** is there like a more user friendly method of creating html**
    use NEW SITE BUILDER ( inside of your acc panel - green button )
    InfinityFree Website Builder. Beautiful websites without code.
    Build your website without writing code or complicated design.
    Pick one of hundreds of templates, edit the contents in the drag-and-drop editor and upload it in minutes. All websites are fast and look great on any device, from smartphones to TVs.

    once and if you have a static web site
    you can easily download it all from the user folder
    then use some local (offline) sitemap generator.exe
    and give it the local path (folder) to index
    then check and upload generated xml files (normal + mobile sitemaps) in root of your website

    ** is there like a more user friendly method of creating html**
    use NEW SITE BUILDER ( inside of your acc panel - green button )
    InfinityFree Website Builder. Beautiful websites without code.
    Build your website without writing code or complicated design.
    Pick one of hundreds of templates, edit the contents in the drag-and-drop editor and upload it in minutes. All websites are fast and look great on any device, from smartphones to TVs.

    Cheers for the info sir, great work, but unfortunately a lot of it has gone over my head somewhat.. Why on earth are they blocked Admin? That sounds ridiculous to me.. There seems a lot of hidden pitfalls with this doesn;t there, I'm glad I'm not paying for it, that's for sure.. I see you're on that rotten freecluster.eu as well, does facebook always block your shares there as well, or is it just me..

  • HI Paul ;) and wb

    facebook has never blocked my website
    I can always put a link on FB

    It seems to me that other users are reporting to you, maybe for spam
    or simply by jealousy, also if you put too many posts with the relevant address
    facebook A.I. will react !
    and you're in a mess

  • In my opinion, letting your website's software generate the sitemap is preferable to letting some external scanner make some guesses as to your website's content. After all, your website's software knows more about what kind of content is on a particular page and can make reasonable statements about page priority and update frequency. Your website's code knows that a blog category index is updated more frequently than an About Us page, for example.

    As for why we specifically block sitemap generators, we don't. It's a side effect of this security system, not a specific, deliberate attempt to disable sitemaps.

    Quite possibly, the content may not be to everybodies taste, but it tells me that freecluster.eu is blocked occasionally, so i thought i'd ask.. It's a nuisance more than anything, they have reinstated every single one of them, every time without fail..

    Yeh, I got a Joomla sitemap generator, it worked, and google accepted it, but it only has one link on it, I also downloaded a program, screaming frog SEO spider, which only does one link as well, baffling.. I have no idea, I think I may have asked google to fetch and index my page without my tag modules available, and that could be returning the error, from what I have been reading.. It's interesting stuff, I'm happy with my sites, I just wish I could get them all on epizy.com, but from what Oxy is saying, my spam problem may remain even if I switch domains.. Interesting stuff..

  • you can always use this if your website is blacklisted on FB or whatever B)

    I have no idea what that is

  • I will try not to turn this topic into chit-chat

    It's a simple animated search but people love when they have something to investigate.
    only one more click for the user to come to your site if you post this on fb but ofc. with your search text.

    Also, if you unable to post your website on FB (filter problem)
    you can bypass this with http://bit.ly/2ExWaKR
