How To Solve Google Sitemap Feed Proxy Errors - One Tip Solution


Google sitemap errors You all know how to submit your blog sitemap to Google if not you can Google for it and can find 1000 tutorials on this single topic but something that most of you might have observed are the Google Sitemap Errors! How do you solve them? Why so many errors when you have done everything the right way? The answer is simple , read on.
What actually happens is the fact that most bloggers burn their feeds at feedburner despite the default Atom feed system provided by Blogger. So most bloggers have redirected their default feeds to feedburner as shown below,


redirecting-site-feed
When we submit our RSS or Atom feeds at Google Webmaster Tools Site we are actually submitting the redirected feed hosted by feedburner. The disadvantage of doing so is that when Google Robot crawls your blog it basically indexes the data provided by the default BlogSpot feed system but since you have redirected your default feeds to feedburner, Google robot has to contact two feed systems at a time! first from BlogSpot and then from Feedbuner and thus it turns out into a confusion and results as Feed Proxy Errors which is surely a headache for every newbie blogger. Unfortunately the internet has almost rare tutorials on this issue. The reason behind doing a professional SEO course was indeed learning how to solve all such problems. Luckily I have come up with a solution.
  • The mistake everyone makes is by adding the following sitemap data,
http://YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com/rss.xml
OR
 http://YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com/atom.xml
  • But this results in dozens of feed proxy errors. To solve this issue simply submit the following sitemap data,
http://YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?redirect=false

Note:- You only need to add feeds/posts/default?redirect=false  because your blog URL will be added by default where , feeds/posts/default?redirect=false is the code that redirects Google only to the default BlogSpot Atom Feed system.

Finally the results for your blog will look like that for mine

no-errors
fully-indexed

Impressive isn’t it! Adopt the right method and you will see a positive change too. Search Engine do really count for 75% of the traffic to your blog so make sure you smoothen the path for them by optimizing your sitemap as guided in today’s post.
