        BennyP, did you ever figure this out? I am getting the same message when I run a Majestic report.

        Is it something with my code, or is it something with my web host?

          Me too, and I have gone over my code several times to ensure accuracy. I don't think it's in the code at all, the problem must be somewhere else. Anyone get and answer to this or is it some weird anomaly?

    HTTP_406_NotAcceptable happens when the server cannot respond with the accept-header specified in the request. In your case it seems application/json for the response may not be acceptable to the server.

    Nah i never figured it out.. Does it effect indexing? Because one of my sites has it's facebook, pinterest, google+ and a press release ranking for the site name, but my website doesn't appear. My site is indexed and not black listed, so i have no idea what is going on..

      Just wanted to bump this to see if there's an answer? I noticed this in Majestic SEO as well, but don't know why--site's not down, and certainly should be on the up and up with Google.

      Any thoughts?

    This error occurs very infrequently in Web browsers, because most of browsers will accept any data returned from the Web server. I suggest you here this link.

      I get the same error and returns N/A for page title.
      I have traced the problem to HostGator. All my sites hosted by them return the same result. All sites hosted by HostNine are OK. Wordpress and other types are all the same result in HostGator.

      ** Received a reply from Hostgator. Will see if problem is fixed next time Majestic crawls the site.
      "This was being caused by a mod_security rule which was being triggered by the URL format. I have whitelisted this rule for you, and now your page will be crawled properly."

        I have a site hosted with Hostnine that is showing this same error code in majestic..so I don't believe it is not just a Hostgator problem.

          True, it is not just Hostgator. My Host9 sites also developed the problem but was fixed quickly by "whitelisting" the rule. Contact support

    If your server is running litespeed instead of apache - it is a mod rewrite issue with wp super cache. ( found by google search )

    460 ~= Mod Security

    On shared hosts, mod_security is often to blame for 406 error codes. By default, mod_security will use the 406 error code when a rule is triggered.

    ModSecurity is a web application firewall system. Much like your desktop AV, it uses rules to block malicious looking HTTP requests.

    The problem is that on shared hosts, you often do not have access to the mod security logs or know what rules are in effect.

    If you have access to your raw apache access logs, you may want to check them for 406 errors.


    I find the rules often catch legit traffic from bots, affiliates, APIs, etc.

    On some shared hosts, you may be able to disable mod security using htaccess.

    Code:
    SecFilterEngine Off SecFilterScanPOST Off
    If you are a responsible webmaster and keep your site's code updated, then
    mod security usually does little for you.

    I've seen plenty of sites hacked with it in place and many sites SEO destroyed due to bad rules.

      I had the same problem but solved it. Simply dont type your URL with the 'http'

      Remove that from your URL and search again. Its going to work.

      Hope that helps

    I found a link on google forums where they suggest a solution:
    https://productforums.google.com/for...rs/YH0jmsAtc5Y

    Also try removing http:// from your website and do a search again.
    It worked for me

      I am having this problem with one of my sites and removing the http:// does not solve it.

      Does anyone know if this is a major problem or should I just ignore it?
