    I ran a curl command on one of our URL, and I got 403 code.

    Still seeing 403 for any link or image pointing to our on Zendesk site when running audits with SERank, changing the UserAgent to GoogleBot makes no difference. What is the solution to correct this?

    Hi, I was wondering if there was any update yet? I'm also receiving the same 403 error message on my website for any links to Zendesk.
