    WordPress XML Sitemap Help

    Hi,

    I created a new WordPress blog and I'm sticked with a sitemap problem. My sitemap loads only without "www" in URL: http://digitalbunch.com/sitemap.xml

    And, when I try to load it with "www" URL, it doesn't shows anything up there. Its totally blank: http://www.digitalbunch.com/sitemap.xml

    I am using Google XML Sitemaps plugin.

    I also tried to submit my sitemap to Google but it need the sitemap URL with "www". It shows error.

    Any suggestion, help?

    Anup

    I just set up a new blog this evening with Google site map generator. There was a settings page that I had not notice before. I think that you can change the url on that settings page. The page is found under the settings tab in the admin interface. There is an option for custom url where you should be able to make the change.

    I think that the problem came at the time that you did the install. Be sure to type the www. in the url when you do a WP install. WP records what is in the address bar as its location and passes the information on to the site map generator.

    hi Anup, glad that you have switched to WP

    add .htaccess file to your root dir:

    with this in it:
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^digitalbunch.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.digitalbunch.com/$1 [L,R=301]

    It works now! Can't we make it works by both ways? Now it works with "www" but doesn't works without "www".

    Thanks for your help

    It is not good idea to have both non www and www domain from seo point of view, because they are treated like separate domians, so you must decide which will be your main domain with or without www.
    This means that all your backlinks pointing back to www domain will not have any impact on non www domain and vice versa.
    Now all your non webpages will be redirected to www. pages, I will suggest that you go with www domain like it is now.
    All my websites have this setup.

    Thanks for the tip! I am currently upon you suggestion, with www. This problem is now solved but again got another problem. DigitalBunch is indexed in Google. But I got some kind of error on the result page:



    What is the cause of that problem?

    It mean, I'll get the description of content in next update. I just installed all in one SEO pack and given proper home title and description. I hope Google will catch right content next time

    Thanks for your help!
