Sitemap is HTML
Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead. What does this mean and how do I fix it?

Thanks so much for the help very one.

Yes you want to turn on XML (Extended Markup Language) in conjunction with your HTML!

When you submit your sitemap to Google make sure you type in 'sitemap.xml' not just 'sitemap'.

Hey Connie,

Kyle covered this in his training ... I thought.

You have two options using plugins and here are two tutorials to help you: Hope this helps you.

I tested my sitemap on google and what does this mean?

I need to change my domain name to something new. To many websites by the old name and can't find mine. Can I change it and transfer all of my files to the new one.

Hi Connie, I think you are making a good decision to keep your domain name unchanged for the time being. As other have said you certainly can change it but it really is not something that most people would recommend doing.

Thank you all for the advise. I will leave it and just keep posting and see how it goes.

You can change it, but it is not advisable.

How old is your website, with a new domain name you start from zero trust again

No, not if you use the WA move function, which sets up all the redirects from the old domain to the new one.

I transferred my 3 siterubix websites to 3 owned domain names, and the trust 100% went to 0% after I did that. Did I miss something?

Ah, no, WA's Site Trust is just a time metric, it automatically goes up 10% a month regardless.

Meaning Google's trust in a site differs from WA's trust it hosts?

I assumed it had a connection with the Google site trust, but it's only a WA indication? Nothing to do with Google?

Search engines prefer established sites over new ones, with about a year being a good amount of time. SiteTrust is just counting up that year in 10% intervals every month. :)

1 Month and getting a little traffic.

Is it your own domain name or a siterubix?

It's mine.

I don't think you will lose a whole lot when you chose to transfer your content to a new domain name when the site is one month old. $14 cash.
You can use a plugin to transfer your content when you decide to make the change.

Thanks Loes

It a little time consuming and it will cost you $$$. Your URL is what's important and you SEO for how high you are ranked.

Hello , you will find your website on google top pages over time. It all depends on your content and Seo. Domain name doe not matter much, it does not even have to be totally related to your niche.
It just has to be simple, easy to remember, type and read.

You can change domain name, but you will have to pay and buy a new domain name and then transfer the old domain name to a new one.

My suggestion, stick with your domain name.....and work on your content

My problem is my website name is advanced internet business and there are a lot of them out there that's close to the same name.

That is such a good name. Why do you want to change that ? It does not matter how many other similar domain names are there. Its not your domain name that ranks on google, its your blog posts which contains good keywords that rank well.

It is in fact nice that there are similar domain names, i think you will receive more traffic as time move along.

Stick with it

Thank you for the help. I can't find it is why I was thanking about it. It was rank in google but when I put the website in, It does not come up.

You are welcome :)

You can move a siterubix subdomain or an owned domain to a new owned domain following this training.
