That particular url is specific to the Homestead domain.  You can't actually remove it. If you view that url in a browser you'll see that it opens a page with a Javascript error message.  That error message is designed to appear if your website contains an element which utilizes Java, but your computer or browser does not support Java, or the security settings are set to not allow java to run. 

Are you running into some sort of problem with this error on your site?

My computer and browser does allow Java.   However, every time I do an SEO audit on my websites. This particular Javascript error always is reported as an Image Problem Alt Text Is Missing.  I know its not really an error, just  an empty IMG Alt Attribute is empty and cannot be used by Google and other Search engines to easily identify the image. So then SEO programs report it as an error.  It really is a useless code for today.  I wish Homestead would remove it.

I am also getting two images that are showing up in my website that are not in my file manager.
brighton01.gif  and  tp.gif   These are showing up and I did not implement them.  I find them in the source code but cannot get rid of them.  Any suggestions of how I can get rid of them.  As they are being reported as errors too... your suggestions would be helpful.

Hello Mike F,  The URL is www.advancecarpetcleandenver.com    I have found this tp.gif on other homestead websites I own.  Cannot figure out how to get rid of them.  Cannot find them in the file manager.  But can be found in source code.

Hi Nicholas6170,

That image is referenced in the snippet for our tracking software.  I am looking to see why, as it doesn't display on the site, but since it is an alternate tracking company, that may be why the tool you are using reports it as an error.

Thanks

Drew
