Owler.com falsely reported as dead link [nlwiki]
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Owler.com is falsely tagged as a dead link: https://nl.wikipedia.org/?diff=58383825


Original report:

The following has been reported before, as part of other bug reports, but hasn't been resolved yet. The Dutch Wikipedia has a template "Citeer web", comparable to the English Wikipedia "Cite web". One of the parameters is "dodeurl" to indicate that a url can no longer be reached. However, the bot keeps using the incorrect parameter "dodelink". Also, the bot keeps flagging a url as dead while it is very much alive. See diff 58383825 on the Dutch Wikipedia. Owler.com is not a dead website.

The dodeurl/dodelink issue is already reported at T275025 however there is also a separate issue being reported of a false positive so I refocused this ticket to focus on that.
