    Explanation
    The best HTTP status code to serve when a website is down for maintenance is 503. This code indicates that the server is temporarily unavailable and unable to handle the request.

  • 5. 

    If you want a page to pass value through its links, but stay out of the search engines' indices, which of the following tags should you place in the header?

    • A.

      NOINDEX, FOLLOW

    • B.

      NOODP

    • C.

    • D.

      NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW

    • E.

      INDEX, FOLLOW

This can be useful when you want to keep a page hidden from search results but still want to pass value or authority through its links.
