Site map indexing
« on: June 21, 2011, 02:23:27 PM »
got a question for the administrator. I have used your sitemap generator for over 2 yrs now. But recently when I create a new sitemap it will not index my store pages or products. It used to. I did have to cheat an upload another sitemap generated by another program to index my products so I could resubmitt to google thru webmaster tools, but sure would like to use your generator for this. Can you tell me why it only index's the front pages and none of the store?

now I got another question. when I try to generate a sitemap using
[external links are visible to admins only] It will only index my front pages

Now when I try to generate a site map for the store using
[external links are visible to admins only]
it will index my products.

But before all i had to do on generate was put in
[external links are visible to admins only]
it would index the front pages and index the store pages with no problem.

Hello,

on your store main page you have this meta tag:
<link rel="canonical" href="http://domain.com/clock_store/" />

it should be:
<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.domain.com/clock_store/" />

You can also disable "Canonical URLs support" setting in generator configuration, but it's better to correct it on your site instead as it might confuse search engines too.

oleg, i got it. So for anyone that uses Zen cart and has the same problem the file that has to be changed in zen cart is the configure.php file, and you have to change the permission from 444 to 755 to change, then make sure it (permission) is set back to 444 and then reindex site map and it works just fine. Please post this oleg for other users that may have this problem will ya
