    Can you view your sitemap by going to it directly?

     

    Example location would be (replace "yourdomain.com" with your actual domain name)

     

    https://yourdomain.com/sitemap.xml

     

    If so, you can submit that address manually through your Google Console account.

     

    HTH! 😉

    Re: Site Map Problems

    Thanks Muse,

     

    Unfortunately I can't get the sitemap as described. The SEO tool says there is a site map, but nowhere I can find it. Also I can build one, but sitebuiler doesn't give you anywhere to put on. 

    Re: Site Map Problems

    I am facing the same problem. Site builder says it is already submitted with no option to update it

    Re: How can you refresh your sitemap in Website Builder?

    Any solution to this? I'm on the phone with customer service right now and they act clueless. They seem to think their SEO tools do everything Analytics wants. They said the tracking ID you add under SEO when you are editing your site submits your sitemap. I guess they assume nobody ever goes to Google Search Console and checks their stats which clearly show no sitemap or if you had the old version probably shows errors now on your former sitemap submitted before the update. The new SEO tools for keyword and all that are cool I guess but my ranking has gone for 10 to 36 which I would assume has a lot to do with this sitemap issue.

    Re: How can you refresh your sitemap in Website Builder?

    They were clueless last time I asked. They said it was ok, but every SEO tools I looked at said it was broken. 

    Re: How can you refresh your sitemap in Website Builder?

    After getting thru to a website specialist they tried to find a solution and couldn't. He said he was unaware that the new website builder didn't have the sitemap option like the last one did. He said he was putting in a feedback ticket or something of that nature to the developers to fix it on the new platform. I don't know how this isn't something being raised and solved before now seeing as everyone who uses their Website Builder should be concerned. Hopefully they fix it soon hut if you call, voice your concern!
