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 admins 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 admins only]) and it looks like there was no issue:


Checked link: [external links are visible to admins only]

Type of redirect: 301 Moved Permanently
Redirected to: [external links are visible to admins 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 :-)

make sure that you specify www.yourdomain.com as Starting  URL instead of yourdomain.com.
