Why does the sitemap for domain.com differ from [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

Hello,

Sitemap Generator doesn't include links to www. and non-www domains in the same sitemap as it is disallowed by google sitemap protocol, since they are considered technically different domains.

I understand that [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] is technically different from domain.com, but I'm still not sure why when I generate my sitemap for [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] and compare it to the sitemap for domain.com that they are different (one gives errors, the other not, one includes more pages while one "missed" some pages).

Any ideas?

Hello,

because sitemap generated for domain.com includes ONLY the pages linked to domain.com/.. and sitemap generated for [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] includes ONLY the pages linked to [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]..
So, if you have link like <a href="[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]">x</a>, it will be included in one sitemap, but not in another.

Okay.

I created a website but my host does not give me options (that I know of) of what goes where. I have my basic FTP directory where all my files go. I don't (seem to have) more control than that.

You say that "sitemap generated for domain.com includes ONLY the pages linked to domain.com/.. and sitemap generated for [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] includes ONLY the pages linked to [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ].. "

Okay, but what am I to do as an end user? I used to think everything I FTP'ed went to domain.com and then was simply via cname also available under [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]. If the LINKS are different, how do I control those or even begin to understand how to get which links under which - either www or without?? Can you understand my delema here - I still have some pages "missing" depending on what I give Google under sitemap generator - either with or without the www and I am trying to find out how I got my pages so mixed up -  NO, I am trying to figure out how to get Google to find all my pages.????

Hope you can help (and thanks for your clear answers thus far - I appreciate that.)

Hello,

please send me (via Private Message) your website URL and a few example links that are not included in sitemap.
