Not indexinf blog
« on: March 30, 2010, 11:09:41 AM »
I am using A1 sitemap generator to make a Google sitemap for http://www.puerto-vallarta-rentals.com  it does not seem to pick up the files in my blog folder, it only comes back with 1 item. I know there are 100's of posts there. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi,

Okay, this issue is actually a combination of mixing www and non-www links and A1SG trying to be "smart" :)


First try scan
"http://puerto-vallarta-rentals.com/"
You will see entire blog gets included in scan:
"http://puerto-vallarta-rentals.com/blog/"


Then try scan (with www)
"http://www.puerto-vallarta-rentals.com/"
there the blog 301 redirects to
"http://puerto-vallarta-rentals.com/blog/"

...But A1 Sitemap Generator will actually instead show blog redirects to "http://www.puerto-vallarta-rentals.com/blog/" i.e. to itself...
The reason for this is that A1SG nowadays defaults to automatically add root aliases  to "fix" a wide range of errors such as website mixing port numbers, with-www vs non-www, http vs https etc. in their website URLs. This "auto add" of root aliases can be configered in "Crawler options" for those who wish to disable this feature.


Anyways, for a solution, either scan:

"http://puerto-vallarta-rentals.com/" (which then works fine with your blog)
or
make your blog use www
or
make your blog accept both non-www and with-www


Best solution though is that your configure your entire website to either use "www" or "non-www" to avoid duplicate URLs. This will be an advantage for link building, ranking etc. as well.


Hope this helps :)

Thank you for your help I did make my blog www and that fixed the problem.

What do you figure is the best way to do this? .htaccess ??

Yes :)


Something like this:


RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.microsystools\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^localhost [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*) http://www.microsystools.com/$1 [R=permanent,L]
