Sitemap Problems
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

When i changed my hosting, the first time google crawled my site i got
HTTP error:301...

I was advised to delete sitemap and republish to google i've since done this
now i've got HTTP:error 404..We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit.

I've tried everything to put this right with no luck..

Hope someone can help me otherwise it's 3 months and lots of money wasted

Thankyou

Kevan - watch this video:

YouTube - ‪How to make and submit a sitemap in Wordpress.‬‏

The instructions are on Day 15 and 16 - if they are not working then the directions are not being understood and followed correctly. They do work however lots of people have problems following them.

I would suggest starting over again and doing each step again to be sure you are understanding.

If you have done this at least a couple times with the same result please try to use a different way.

1. Try Stone's directions in the PIPS training Day 15 and Day 16.

2. Try this video from PipSiteHelp:
YouTube - ‪How to make and submit a sitemap in Wordpress.‬‏


3. Try Google's instructions at Google Webmaster

About Sitemaps - Webmaster Tools Help


4. Try a Wordpress Plug-In

WordPress › Sitemap Index « WordPress Plugins

Hi Pat

Thank You for your help, i followed the youtube video i've now got a
green tick instead of a red cross..

URLs submitted has gone to zero as have my URLs in web index

If this works ok, I owe you so much..

Thanks Again
Kevan

adding a dns entry on your new hosting would help avoid this in the future
