    Also, I have perfect w3 validation, yet translated pages have 90+ errors. I dont understand why as the code should be unchanged.

    Can you show me a link on your page where this happens?

    I'm not so concerned about header checkers -- I'm concerned about what happens to real site visitors (and robots!)

    Ahh... that's a great question! Welcome to the deep underbelly of translation.

    Google absolutely stuffs the translated pages with crap. We have to take that crap out in order to reduce the "footprint" of the translated pages that Google can use to automatically penalize them.

    In tr_config.php, set write_raw_content to true and then look at the raw translation files. There is an enormous amount of garbage that needs to be cleaned up.

    That's what the function GoogleFixup() does.

    Of course, that code is complex and can easily be buggy!

    If you don't like what GoogleFixup() is doing to your pages, you can add/edit/delete anything in that section of the code. That's where the real magic happens.

    Well real visitor goto the right place, I thought robots used headers, so that was my concern. You can enter any /en/ url into a header checker and it 301's to the translate folder.

    It looks like the header checker script you are using follows the first 301, but does not follow the next 301. Human visitors (and robots) follow both 301's.

    Thanks, that makes sense.

    Can you explain this error to me, now doing it on all pages, thanks.

    Code:
    Code: -2 (Translator returned status '302' (req=http://209.85.229.132/translate_c?hl=en&sl=en&tl=nl&u=http://www.domain.com/&usg=ALkJrhjG-0E1mQ8L2FBwC5ti3u5n-uNhFg))
    
    Redirects:
    translate_p_Frame: http://translate.google.com/translate_p?hl=en&sl=en&tl=nl&u=http://www.domain.com/&usg=ALkJrhjdlG-zZ8SqNIt5seHxkj7IE4LU1Q

    I think it may be an ip block but not 100% sure.

    When that error occurs, is the page still cached, and only re-cached 30 days later?

    Can I add meta=noindex to the error page?

    Thanks.

    Talking to myself here... It's broken again, thought it was a ban but it's dead on fresh domain and fresh IP.

    Think it isn't cleaning up &usg= parameters correct.

    Update: davesnake's issue is resolved. It was an IP ban.
