I'm a geek. Based on the content of this blog, many of my readers are too. But some of you just may have seen a woman at some point. If you have, you have likely been rejected, but don't understand what she means. This handy guide will put rejection into terms we can all understand — HTTP Response codes. SEOs should especially appreciate these. Implementation via PHP.
Note: These are all real. I didn't make them up!
header("HTTP/1.0 306 (Unused)");
"I'm a virgin."
header("HTTP/1.0 402 Payment Required");
"I'm from Craigslist."
header("HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden");
header("HTTP/1.0 303 See Other");
"Maybe we should see other people."
header("HTTP/1.0 417 Expectation Failed" );
"Maybe Cialis, next time … ?"
header("HTTP/1.0 411 Length Required");
"You call that a penis?"
header("HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found");
OK, I'm totally immature, but what can I say — I laughed while I was writing this.

UPDATE: I got bored and made some shirts for myself. I'm selling them here at ZERO profit on Cafepress.com. (Just a bit of shameless advertising, though … :)):

[...] The article is at the SEO-weblog. Of course you have to understand the Status Code Definitions of http, but then they are very funny.
