yes solved. showing dead page and code 404 too and that yahoo search result for dead pages have almost gone too.

but searching "India Broadband Forum" "dead page" still gives many answers, shud resolve in 2-3 days though

correction 96-97 more days lol. i think yahoo must be having some N number of days as timeout before it thinks that page which was available earlier is really gone.

may be site explorer is configured to show dead links as well, so that webmaster can easily detect dead links on their website.btw why is Apache so old? hope its patched!Server: Apache/1.3.37
