    Hi Everyone!
    I’m hoping someone could please help me with this issue. I am new to blogging, and do not know much technical jargon. So please bear with me. I submitted my website http://bestzeolitesupplements.com to Google and Bing webmasters, and both came back with a 403 error. If you click on the website, it can be viewed. I used this website http://www.rexswain.com/httpview.html, using “googlebot” as the “user agent” to learn what the problem might be, and it stated the following:

    Receiving Header:
    HTTP/1.1•403•Forbidden(CR)(LF)
    Date:•Mon,•12•Mar•2012•19:47:27•GMT(CR)(LF)
    Server:•Apache(CR)(LF)
    X-Pingback:•http://bestzeolitesupplements.com/xmlrpc.php(CR)(LF)
    Connection:•close(CR)(LF)
    Transfer-Encoding:•chunked(CR)(LF)
    Content-Type:•text/html;•charset=UTF-8(CR)(LF)
    (CR)(LF)

    I did hours of research trying to figure out what this might be, and the answers are usually pretty vague or don’t seem to relate to my situation, so I cannot fully comprehend what the issue might be. This is what I have done so far: 1. Uninstalled, deleted, and reinstalled the theme, 2. I called the server provider and had them scan the site for anything unusual, 3. Deactivated and uninstalled all plugins, 4. I looked through the header code for anything that seems funky (though I have no idea what I am looking for), and nothing seems to stand out.
    I’m really lost and frustrated, and any help would greatly be appreciated!

    BTW, my site is hosted by godaddy. I don't know if that is part of the issue.
