  • Indexing Problems - Sitemap submitted and linked in robots.txt

     

    I don't really care much as of yet, and i sure won't spend a lot of time trying to fix this issiue.

     

    Only the main page is getting indexed by live search, (www.brugbart.com) despite having mod-rewrite anabled for simplified URL's, and submitted a sitemap, not to mention linked the sitemap from the robots.txt.

     

    The site appears to be in good standing with a nice domain score at 4 bars. And no crawl issues from the webmaster tools I.E. "No data is available." Still it claims that 2 pages are indexed (presumebly the sitemap along with the main page), but only one page is showing.


    The site was last crawled 01-07-2008 According to Webmaster Tools, which is rather long ago, compared to Google and Yahoo's Crawler.

  • Hi,

     

    Have you tried resubmitting your sitemap with updated dates? Sometimes that helps.

    I did try to resubmit after waiting a few days.

     

    The sitemap is an Index containing 5 other Maps, which are generated dynamically Server-Side, maybe the crawler don't like sitemap indexes?

     

    The included content of the other maps would be lastmod changefreq and priority along with the location.

     

    I.E. http://www.brugbart.com/SiteMapIndex.php

     

    I just checked my sitemap, and it would seam that i didn't serve the sitemap using Content-Type: application/xml, I'm not sure if this would mean anything, since both google and yahoo seams fine.

     

    In php this would be something like header('Content-Type: application/xml'); Maybe this will fix the problem, resubmitting when fixed.
