Hi all -
I have an ecommerce site where I noticed that *none* of the common XML Sitemap generators found any pages. The site is https://bachelorettepartystation.com
and here's a typical Product Page: https://bachelorettepartystation.com/bachelorette-party/bachelorette-bash-in-progress-3-quot-button
A credible source of mine took a look and came up with this:
1) All of my "http://
" pages are redirected to their "https://
" equivalent (via .htaccess)
2) My "canonical" URL tags setup to point the "http://
" version of your pages (not the https version)
and he gave me a workaround and a tool to generate an XML sitemap.
SO MY WORRY IS:
I can get an XML Sitemap now, BUT this makes me think that the Search Engines won't find these pages either.
HENCE MY QUESTION IS:
Should I correct items #1 and #2 above for SEO purposes, or do these things not matter to the Search Engines?
