How to let Adwords know error 404 precisely

Hi all

 

My programmer told me that dead link is arranged in this way. It's not a purely 404 and that's why Adwords unable detect it is a 404 or under construction.

Is there any way to add some coding in html, let Google know it's not working and disapprove my ad instead of keeping them run?

 

Thanks

Hi Eric

 

The script is very useful and I need some time to drill with it.

 

I understand Google can't response immediately every time but I want to make sure if the robot really check on the page, if there is signal code I can insert to the page for search engine identifying it's 404.

Just another way to limit wastage.

 

Thanks
