  • Hi,

     

    I could not find a robots.txt file located at onecamonly.com/robots.txt nor could I find a sitemap at onecamonly.com/sitemap.xml

     

    Could you provide such links to me?

    If you aren't using a robots.txt file, I highly recommend using one. If nothing else, it is a great place to place a link to your sitemap for our crawler.

  • Hi, 

     

    Sorry for the delay. You are in the queue but there are about six people ahead of you. Due to the nature of other's issues and not knowing what we have until we review their sites, my rough estimate is end of next week.

  • Maybe you need to pass it again to live or just try to experiment other method. Do you have a sitemap, robot.txt, and feeds?

  • Ok, i guess that it takes some time to review my collect fortune website too.  Does it suppose to get it done automatically?

  • Beboo you may want to consider using the naming format Brett mentions.  A long time ago we had some trouble with the live bot when we had another name.  It is also sensitive to the robots file, did you run it through the live tool validator?  Way back we had a problem with the html on our page and I still think that caused it to browse  but not index the site. Even today we still find it, we've had one  or two product pages that it wouldn't index and still hasn't indexed either because the name is so common - heavy duty air compressor - and is probably used in hundreds of thousands of pages across the web or an earlier html error went uncorrected many times and now the page is ignored   As others have said all you can do is keep trying.  It took about 4 months for our site to get an initial index and another 3 months for it to get deep indexed by Live.  They've greatly improved their processes and at this point are as fast as everyone else.

     

    Start with the XML file and make sure it's conforming to the standard format, make sure you have the robots file, make sure you've validated with a proper xml file and beyond that build links.
