Status Codes

A status code is a code returned invisbily by the server, telling the client what the status of the request is. Some common status codes are 200 (OK), 301 (Permanent Redirect), 302 (Temporary Redirect), 404 (Not Found) and 500 (Internal Error).

Status codes are important for SEO, because search engines normally only index pages that give a status code in the 200 range (OK). To see the status code, open the network tab of your browser.
