So far as I know of the Url you submit must be an absolute URL
So lets say I submit my site http://www.erols.com/inachu

The SE's will not like it because my ISP instituted a redirect
to make my url also work as http://users.erols.com/inachu

So the url has to be the final url and not a "VIRTUAL" url.
