problem accessing URL
« on: December 10, 2011, 07:43:16 PM »
"There was an error while accessing the URL specified: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
Please make sure to specify the correct website URL and resubmit your request."

This seems to be a recurring problem for many. I am not sure what the problem is with my site and why the sitemap tool cannot access my site.

I used the internetofficer.com tool to verify my redirect ([ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]) and it looks like there was no issue:

"Response

Checked link: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

Type of redirect: 301 Moved Permanently
Redirected to: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]"

Not only can I not create a new sitemap but also there are crawl errors in Google Webmaster.

I don't know what is wrong or how to fix it.

Please help :-)

Hello,

make sure that you specify [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] as Starting  URL instead of yourdomain.com.
