I haven't received any WA emails since around 3 PM yesterday. Has anyone else experienced this?

I've noticed that the WA site appears to be slow in responding today and has been a bit 'jumpy'!

No problem here, but I did check my spam folder and found one WA email... hmmm.

Some email accounts will see it as spam unless you whitelist it.

No problem here.

I have had more emails going to my spam folder then my inbox. I still don't know if I am getting all of them.

You're no. 5 that I've seen, Kristina. I started something, I guess. I had to switch email accounts. Once I did that, it was fine. Not sure what's going on.

I'll give that a try.

Working fine for me....just keeping up with them all is my problem. I just set about 15 mins aside 3 times a day to try to answer them all.

I'm still getting emails.

It looks like you are not alone. A few others have commented about this. I saw Carla first

Strange. So, Carla's not getting any either?

Yesterday she had a problem. May be fixed now.

It's working fine for me.

I moved my site to WA several days ago and now google searches the site and can not find URLs. How do I fix 404 errors so google can index my site?

Is it possible that you changed a page name? So the page is still there but the name has changed? I did that when I first set up my site. I had mrbobobook.com/Pictures-and-Video, but later deleted that page and separated it out to mrbobobook.com/pictures and mrbobobook.com/video. Google was still attempting to access the first iteration so I just clicked Mark as Fixed.

It's possible. The site that I moved was also www and now in wordpress it's non-www. Not sure how to change this without having redirect issues. Do you know how to do that?

Not unless what onefineham said works... going to Settings-General and changing the WordPress Address URL by adding www to it. Maybe submit a support ticket. Those guys are sharp.

It says too many redirects and then I can't see my site at all. I just changed my settings in webmaster telling them to only look at the non-www. Hopefully that will work.

Fingers crossed!

For Real! and toes, eyes and anything else I can find to cross!

There is a specific step by step procedure... I'll try to find it. I have done it once before for the same reasons.

Pretty sure this is how I did my domain a while back

http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

Before I do anything. Do you think by telling webmaster tools to only index the non-www site would fix the problem?

I don't think so. Your problem is structural, not just a gloss over I think. man my tablet types some wierd stuff.

When I look up site:larimoreservices.com all of the non-www are indexed and the www show up as 404.

Structural, meaning?

It's okay. I got the jest of it.

Your site redirects to www... You can see this at opensiteexplorer.org yet google has indexed both (I got both results in my site: search for your domain).

For example I saw 17 pages indexed on your 7 page site and google even reported that it had blocked an additional 10 pages.

I see that now. The problem is my site is being hosted at WA and I don't have a wp-config.php.

Odd wp-config missing.

Yeah, I'm about to lose it. I put in a support ticket. This is for my husbands business so it's kind of crucial that I get this fixed pronto. I am very thankful for your help.

Where are your sites hosted?

Mine was with GoDaddy and I moved the nameservers to WA

I have sites all over the place including several at WA. WA hosting doesn't give certain access the way a Godaddy or other host does, but their support has always been a pretty quick turnaround. I will continue to follow this with you until resolved.

They told me WA servers are configured in such a way that it redirects all www links to non-www links.This should not cause the problem for your site as there are other sites which are doing well and do not have any issue of indexing in Google.

Thought I'd give you an update. I now have one page showing indexed. Keeping fingers crossed. Thank you again for your help. You are wonderful!

Just glad to be some help.

Hi I was wondering did you have any further bother with those 404 errors once you clicked Mark as Fixed. i have five 404s now and fetch as google is behaving strangely

Nice post!

This is what I get when trying to go to your site:

The page does not refer in a proper manner

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never end.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Loes

Great! How do I fix that?

You need a pro for that

Have you tried to 'Google the answer?

It's O.K. from my side also.

Hi Christina! -

Great news - your Website is find - you need to clear your browsers cache!

No, I can see my site. Google Webmaster is giving me 404 errors and not indexing the site.

You will need to ask that question specifically

That should help! :)

Okay. Just edited question.

Hi there Christina,

I had a similar problem. Check out this Q & A session

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/what-is-a-404-error-and-how-to-fix-it/comment/2410451

Thanks, I saw that. It shows you how to remove the pages so they won't be indexed. I need them to be indexed.

Hi Christina! -

What is the URL - I'll check it my end :)

larimoreservices.com

Looks like Google has around 17 pages indexed correctly. In webmaster tools, what "date" did Google find the errors?
You may just be able to "mark as fixed" in webmaster tools and be done with it.

It says last crawled 9/1
First detected 8/30

I think you can just "mark as fixed"
Just as a final check... how many pages are in the sitemap you submitted to webmaster tools?

Hey just noticed something else. Waaaay down the bottom of your page you have some odd / php code. You may have an error in your theme or one of your plugins somewhere. This is appearing at the bottom of your home page:

'; echo $content; }

Looking at the source it appears you have a '; echo $content toward the end of your footer... you probably need a php escape after the single quote (and close escape after the ;) - or you need to whack that stuff entirely. Either way... that's where the error is.

I pray it's not my theme. It took me days to pick it out and then I purchased the pro version.

It could be though. Webmaster shows that I have submitted 7 urls, it crawls them, and then they just disappear from indexing. While it's indexing all of my pages show up in search and then after it's finished they all back to error 404 when you look them up. Except for the homepage the rest are all 404

7 and it shows 7 URLs submitted and then when I check on it later it shows 0 URLs submitted.

I can't find it when I try to edit.

If you purchased the Pro version then the author almost certainly will be willing to look over your site to try to find it for you.

I think if the theme has one flaw how many others does it have. Should I just find another theme?

I would get in touch with the writer of that theme - before I did anything!

Have you checked your settings on the sitemap plugin? There can be a conflict depending when you first installed that program. A recent update dramatically changed how that plugin works.

Everything looks fine there.

I just don't understand why it would show 7 submitted and then 2 hours later show 0?

Gotta admit, you have me stumped. I checked your robots file... nothing out of the ordinary there.

I just emailed them so, we will see.

Thanks for trying. I just emailed the author. Maybe they can help.

Which site domain do you have setup in webmaster tools? Is it the www.larimoreservices.com version... or the larimoreservices.com (no www) version? Google seems to have both indexed right now and maybe that is the confusion. Your sitemap calls for the non-www version. Maybe Google indexed the www version first and thinks the rest is duplicate content... or... you have registered the www version on webmaster tools but your sitemap is listing non-www only (which google would then show as '0' submitted on the www domain).

Both. They say to submit both. Should I delete the www version from webmaster tools?

I don't know the answer to that question... my suspicion is no, don't delete. But if there is no difference btw the www and non-www ... that's going to cause one version to be flagged duplicate content and de-indexed.
Google used to let you decide which domain is the "correct" one within webmaster tools. Will see if I can find that setting.

I could not find that setting, although I control the www vs non www via htaccess modifications... google may not even look at my sites for the www version now.

It looks like they are getting info from the www version and not the non-www. What should I do?

I think I am on to something with this now. Your domain seems to re-direct to the www version but your wordpress site is set for the non-www version. Your sitemap is confusing google by telling it that the non-www version is correct when your domain setup is saying the opposite. You need to fix that conflict. Will see if I can find a wordpress.org link to do that change correctly.

I think you are right. Thanks.

from the WordPress.org help site:
"Absolutely no need to redirect non-www to www sites with .htaccess. Simply go into WordPress admin to the site settings and add the www. to your domain in Dashboard>>Settings>>General

There's no appreciable SEO difference in the two. People trying to go to the non-www site will be redirected to the www. domain by WordPress. "
Give that a go, then re-create your xml sitemap, and resubmit.

Not to sound stupid but how do I recreate sitemap?

After I've done this should I delete the non-www in webmaster tools since it seems to be the one not collecting any data?

I think if you just "update options" on your xml sitemap plugin (way down bottom of screen) that should do it. Hopefully. Getting an error right now trying to access your sitemap, so you definitely changed something.

I leave that up to you. I don't think it will matter once you have established the www as the primary version.

I am offline shortly. Will check back in tonight to be sure everything went ok.

Thank you soooooooooo much for your help!

I had to remove the www because it showed my site as having too many redirects. What do you recommend now?

Right now I see your site is up. That's #1. Even if we fail to resolve problem the site is still visible.

Wish I knew how the www got in there in the first place. Do you have an ftp program like filezilla? If so can you see a file called .htaccess in the httpdocs directory on your WA hosting for this domain?

You know I just noticed the state (assumed FL) is missing from your address card at the bottom of every page. That could be a source of the error related to the random code at the bottom of the page.

My original site was www

Fixed the state issue

Just a typo or omission I assume?

I did it through a geomap generator. Have no idea why the state was left off.
