My site is up on the web... I don't think I did anything unusual with my links I created, but when Googlebot crawled my site every link turned up "redirect error" with little info. as to how I can fix it. I resubmitted my site map, but I still get the same error messages. Any suggestions?

Hi karin,

If you think that you already remove or fix the errors on affected link, just wait that google update their web crawl report because sometimes they detected and reported those error that you have on your site a week ago.

Hi Karin,
Nice looking site!

Did you use our tutorial for submitting your sitemap in the .xml format?

Here is a link to the tutorial for verifying your site with Google Webmaster and submitting a sitemap: Google Webmaster Tutorial. Let us know if you have all ready done this.

Yeah, I already did that. My site is verified, but I still have "errors for URLs in Sitemaps" and "URLs not followed" - this is getting confusing! And my sitemap is in the .xml format and it says the sitemap is "OK". Any other ways to "refresh" my links, rename them, etc?

Hi Karin,
Can you give me a screen shot of the page in your account showing the errors? Here is what I would like to see if you can:

HI Karin, thanks for your patience on this - this issue can be fixed quickly!

To resolve the issue, you'll need to follow the Google Webmaster Tools process at http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/g... using "http://www.dreamthebeyond.com" as your site instead of "http://dreamthebeyond.com."
- The site you add should be "http://www.dreamthebeyond.com" without quotes
- The sitemap you add should be "http://www.dreamthebeyond.com/sitemap..." also without quotes.

As soon as Google crawls your site again, you should see that you don't have any errors for your new sitemap. It's your choice whether you remove the site without www. from your account, but it will continue to show errors.

We're working on updating that tutorial to be a little more clear for users who have their own domain.

On a very positive note - I see that Google does already have your home page indexed - great work! (I saw this by Googling for one of the phrases on your page - "Dreams are the key to our subconscious")

Good luck!
