First submission of sitemap best practices 4 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello,

I went through your documentation in depth.

I was wondering if you had a step-by-step guide to submitting sitemap to GWT for an existing site ?

My first question is: can I submit all my maps on the control panel?

Link for HTML sitemap, XML sitemap, XML image and XML Mobile?

(My site is mobile ready on the root domain)

Ref.: http://www.quebecguitare.ca/

P.S.: I would gladly give you backend information if that can help.

Thank you,
Regards.

Hello Alexandre,

please contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it providing access to backend site,
so i will be able to help and solve all 3 questions you posted here.

In the meanwhile:

-question with RSS-> due to a javascript code for Google Analytics incorrectly added to the XML of the feed, probably a bugged plugin?
-question with custom data source-> i should access backend to better help you
-question with sitemaps submission -> just submit the links to Google webmasters tools if you have an account in the section to submit sitemaps. Of course the HTML sitemap is not to submit, only the XML formats are to be submitted to search engines

Thanks and regards,

John

Is this a google cache problem delay?

Yes if you have granted access to URLs for 'video/player' in your robots.txt it's not immediate.
You have to wait that Google will fetch again the robots.txt and refresh it, usually every 2/3 days.

Re:First submission of sitemap best practices 4 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi John,

I have about 13 elements in this map that have an unwanted "/component/" fragment in the URL.

Example: http://www.quebecguitare.ca/component/k2/jaco-pastorius
http://www.quebecguitare.ca/component/jmap/sitemap/xml

Could you help me to get rid of them with the associated SEF expression "trick" that is associated with a menu item, if this can be applied to this case?

Please have a look on the backend if you can do something about it.

Thank you,
Regards

Hi Alex,

when the Joomla router uses component/k2 inside links means that it can't be resolved to an associated menu item. Usually with K2 you should have a menu item linked to that category of articles as for other links to apply the SEF alias.
