When i go to setup my Local Boost the message is "First you need to publish your website. Before we create a listing, please publish your website".

My website is published and has been for months now.
If i hit the button it wants me to setup another domain. Any ideas?

Hi Darcy,

I was able to replicate that error. I see that you have two websites in your account and one was unpublished. It looks like the unpublished website was causing that error. By publishing it to a .yolasite subdomain it allowed access to create your Local Boost listing. Alternately, if you aren't using that website, you can delete it which should serve the same purpose. In the meantime I'll log this for our engineering team because having an unpublished website in an account that also has a published website should not prevent you from submitting your Local Boost profile.

Hi Laura,

Thanks for fixing this! I have set it up. But I have a question or two.

I have both the domain names, if the .com site is searched is it not supposed to redirect directly to the .ca site? What if I delete the .com site then what happens? If not how do I set it up so both sites are connected? Boy I'm more confused than ever.

Thanks again for your help, it’s much appreciated.

Regards,

Darcy Harbourne

Hello Darcy

You can assign multiple domains to one website, and make one of the domains your primary domain where the others will be redirected to. So if you have a website which is already published to your .ca domain, you can assign your .com domain to this website as well, and make your .ca domain your primary domain which will always be displayed in the browser address bar, no matter which URL people entered there.

For detailed instructions on this please see our tutorial Assigning domains and creating a primary domain. If you should have any questions or get stuck at some stage, please let us know, and we'll be happy to assist you further.
