Wheeek

I bought two new domains and suddenly google panics

Recommended Posts

Here is what my knowledge is. HTML5 CSS3 and how to install things. Okay I have a main domain called jamiesmedia.com in bluhost. I added wheeek.com and made it an addon like wheeek.jamiesmedia.com and all is fine with google bot and me until I get website happy and buy two new domains. I am VP of an organization and these two new domains are what sent google into some frenzy where they can't find my jamiesmedia.com and tried to fix by breaking things and stopped.

 

I apologize that there is absolutely no correct way to explain what I need to fix. I personally don't understand what I did in the bluhost file manager to make problems with an address that I once told google webmasters that I own. I cannot figure out how to delete the site from google webmasters that looks like http://www.jamiesmedia.com/ and how on earth do I fix it to where I can type in jamiesmedia.com or http://jamiesmedia.com or www.jamiesmedia.com or every other form of address without it being re-directed to jamiesmedia.com in the address bar? Now I go to www.ourpetsareloved.com and it is fine I think, but when I type the url in a facebook post, I have to type http first in order for the site to pop up. Last time I did that, the title said SS site and that is how....I think I just figured something out. I installed wordpress differently on the new domain because I wanted it to not be linked to my own sites. ourpetsareloved.com and ourpetsareloved.org ones I do not want to be linked to my other personal sites.

 

Can somebody explain what I am lacking in knowledge so I can learn how to fix what problems that apply to what I typed? I do like having my main domain work. Perhaps I should have installed wordpress on the sub domain opal.jamiesmedia.com instead of www.ourpetsareloved.com ? I tend to break many things when I try to undo what I recently did. I love learning. Is there anything that I need to copy into this topic that can give a better picture of the problems? Please tell me where to find this topic if it is moved because I have no clue what type of mess I created.

That could be in a few areas. If you're using a system like Wordpress to run your site, maybe Wordpress is doing the redirection. That might also happen using a file on the server called .htaccess, that file can contain rules to do redirections and things like that. Your host might also have a section in their control panel where you would set something like that up.I'm not sure what other issues you're having though, the other domains you posted open fine for me.

If in wordpress you set your domain to use http://www.blahblah.com it will use absolute path url address including this domain on ALL links wether it be image, link to page, css, and website js files.You have to decide what url you want for example with 'www' or without, then use mod_rewrite to change the address to your requirements, that way google will only reference with url to your specification, and not treat it as duplicate content as in one with 'http://blahblah.com' and other 'http://www.blahblah.com' even though they are the same site.

OMG I think I fixed it! lol I compared the wordpress settings for ourpetsareloved and jamiesmedia and noticed that jamiesmedia.com had the site address url for wordpress to be http://jamiesmedia.com without the www. I took a risk and changed both entries to www and now my site is normal. I will now check to see if google agrees with this statement.

You may find google does not list the corrected url instantly, and you have couple options leave it and it will eventually correct itself, or use google webmaster tools to remove incorrect listed website links.

I clicked quote instead of multi-quote and when I tried to find a way to switch to a multi-quote, I discovered that this forum has a try it yourself thing as an option. It has more than that and I imagine myself spending days playing around with all the different features that are available on the main site. I often wonder if anybody else who learned from the book Head First HTML with CSS and XHTML stopped (stopped reading and began try it yourself) when they discovered the reference to this site in the middle of the book. That is me! Great book, but even better website...

I always wondered why the .htaccess in the cpanel folder is empty and what on earth it means. The same with the things like .smileys and shtml? I basically just use wordpress as a way to save html and css in the un-used text widgets. I have so many widgets it is exciting. Thank you for the explanation on the wordpress. :)

The .htaccess file is used by Apache (the web server) to contain rules that only apply to the directory where .htaccess is located (and directories under it). It's a way for you give Apache special rules for various things, for example you can use it to tell Apache that a certain directory is password-protected. By far (I assume) the most common use for it is to define the rewrite rules that make it possible for human-readable URLs to work on your site. You may notice if you click on a certain blog post, then look in the URL, that things like the title of the blog post are in the URL. If you actually went to your web server to try to find a file at that URL, you won't find it. The rules in .htaccess tell Apache how to handle requests for URLs like that (they send the requests to Wordpress' index.php file which looks up the actual URL and figures out which post to show).
