URL forwarding
« on: October 14, 2006, 01:11:52 PM »
Our domain is www.whiteplainshistory.org.  We purchased it from GoDaddy and are using their domain forwarding feature to forward to http://68.199.89.12:3380/whiteplainshistory/.

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

With respect to Google, an ordinary sitemap.txt file was created http://www.whiteplainshistory.org/sitemap.txt but Google complains that the file is an unsupported format.

With repsect to Sitemaps.com, specifying http://www.whiteplainshistory.org gives only one link, the home page itself, while specifying http://68.199.89.12:3380/whiteplainshistory/ results in "An error occurred".

The bottom line is that we'd like Google to recogniize our site www.whiteplainshistory.org.   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.
