URL forwarding
« on: October 14, 2006, 01:11:52 PM »
Our domain is [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ].  We purchased it from GoDaddy and are using their domain forwarding feature to forward to [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ].

This seems to present problems to Google and Sitemaps.com.

With respect to Google, an ordinary sitemap.txt file was created [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] but Google complains that the file is an unsupported format.

With repsect to Sitemaps.com, specifying [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] gives only one link, the home page itself, while specifying [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] results in "An error occurred".

The bottom line is that we'd like Google to recogniize our site [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ].   Suggestions welcomed.

I am not sure how helpful you may think this sounds but my advice to you would be to do away with domain forwarding.
