Some pages are not getting crawled nor indexed
« on: March 19, 2010, 06:05:35 PM »
Hi there Mr Oleg Ignatiuk and everyone else.

This is the first day I'm using the software and it looks very promising. However I still have 2 issues that I'm trying to solve and hoping to get some help here.

1) How do I add a sitemap entry attribute for the URL "[external links are visible to admins only]"

I tried "/,2010-03-19,daily,1.0" but then all pages in the whole site will get the same attribute. (index.php has the canonical page / and index.php$ is not used).

2) 96 pages like the following example are not getting crawled nor indexed: [external links are visible to admins only]

Here is the navigation path to the example page:

[external links are visible to admins only]
[external links are visible to admins only]
[external links are visible to admins only]

I may have done something wrong entering Excluded URLs but I can't figure out where the problem is.

Sitemap is here: [external links are visible to admins only]

Below follows my new config.

Thanks a lot for helping me out!!!!!

Regards

Hello,

1. please try this:
$,2010-03-19,daily,1.0

2. The URL matches this exclusion that you have defined:
.*[topic|board]=\d+$

you should replace it with:
.*(topic|board)=\d+$

Thank You very much for the kind help!  ;D

I've done some experimenting this morning and found out the regexp .*start=[A-Za-z%]* made some results that I did not predict. When generating maps, it matches target string index.php?action=dictionary;sa=all;start=50 to be excluded even though it shouldn't according to a Regular Expression Test Page i found at regexplanet.com/simple/index.html

However i changed it to .*start=[A-Za-z%]+ and now everything seems to be running as I want it to do as I now have 7335 Pages indexed.

I will try your other recommendations out.

Thanks again and keep up the good work with this super software!  ;D

Great it works!

// EDIT REASON: I was to fast to reply. It doesn't work. All links are now getting the same date, frequency and priority.
$,2010-03-19,daily,1.0 seems to match ALL pages indexed.

By the way, do I always have to manually edit this list to set the current date or can I enter some kind of placeholder e.g. something like %today% to let the generator use the current date.

You can simply omit the date part like:
/$,,daily,1.0

and it will insert the default date according to your configuration (which can be set to "current time")
