Hello all,
Just wondering if one should be concerned about any limit with 403's in a htaccess file. In others words does Google or search engines consider say if 25, 50 or 75 or any amount is to many or does it matter?
Also if 403's have been up for over 18 months can some be deleted safely or best to just leave alone?

Thanks in advance.

not sure about the limit
but the question is why are there so many

make a backup copy of the htacess file on your server & upload it if required
delete the htaccess (403) from the server,
test out the site with that htaccess gone, ifd it works ok, then yes it's possible to remove that file, if not then download the backup copy you made back onto the server, & then start to investigate why so many 403 forbidden errors occur

Keep them active for a year.
No limit on them as you could have a site with 1000's of pages.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Well that civet's coffee goes for about $39.00 for 1/2 lb. on ebay and would think you would you need to acquire a taste for it. Staying with standard un- digested coffee beans :D

Hehehe I get it for around 5$ a ton !!!! (kidding) but i is very cheap here, as this is where the best of Luwak is sort of grown) it's a mild yet tasty flavor, that is gentle on my tummy. not sure what 1/2 pound is anymore but I get 4 kilos for around the equivalent of 30$
