Where can I find my sitemap / robots.txt files?

We create these pages dynamically so you will not find them in your control panel / file system.

Go to the XML sitemap settings page and on the right hand side you will see a list of links to the various pages we produce.

Why do I get a blank page or 404 error?

This usually happens when your permalinks are not set up correctly.

We will alert you to this when you go to the XML sitemap settings page.

Simply go to the Permalinks settings page and make sure you are NOT using plain links.

Why does google think my sitemap is HTML?

You may have submitted the wrong link. It should be www.yourwebsiteaddress.something/xmlsitemap.xml

Another reason this happens is when your permalinks are not set up correctly.

We will alert you to this when you go to the XML sitemap settings page.

Simply go to the permalinks settings page and make sure you are NOT using plain links.

Why does google say my website / pages are blocked?

This is usually because of a problem with your robots.txt file or WordPress is adding a noindex nofollow meta tag.

This is a problem with your “Search Engine Visibility” on the “Reading settings” page.

We will alert you to this when you go to the XML sitemap settings page.

Simply go to the Reading Settings page and ensure “Discourage search engines from indexing this site” is NOT ticked.
