View Full Version : Solved Request for assistance on sitemap

11-03-11, 14:55
Ok, I have a sitemap I run outside of VBSEO to create a sitemap for my dynamic pages under CMPS. Now I created a script to generate the URL structure and thought it was all good but I did not consider the fact that VBET changes the actual URL in the translations. So now I have a problem with the sitemap making url's that are not correct obviously.

here is an example


is what I have in sitemap


is what i see as a duplaicte in webmaster tools and is obviously the correct one

Now I am looking at either removing the alternate lang from my sitemap unless I can can somehow pull the translations from the cahe database?

let me know what you think on this please.

hmm but integration with sitemap should generate not translated urls' - only with lang code (like first one)

sitemap - you mean vBSEO sitemap? Are you sure that you have a good integration?

No, these are dnamic pages outside of vbseo, so they dont show up in the vbseo sitemap.

Its not a giant deal but i was looking to see if it was possible to pull the url translation from the VBET somehow

OK, Even some issues with the integrated sitemap
from Google Webmaster tools:

HTTP Error: 301
URL: http://www.allfreechips.com/phpBB2/ca/news/6425-rtg-releases-two-amazing-new-slot-games.html

Problem detected on: Mar 16, 2011

redirects to


I have a feeling these are not going to be good!

Links in sitemap should be not translated.
This is good - This is how it should work. Why? Performance.
At this moment generation of 52 times more links for threads can consume lot of time for large forums. Translation of all of those in same time could made it really, really time consuming and generate lot of queries to database.

And this is good for google - as you see, you have a 301 redirect to the page with translated url (HTTP Error: 301).

Google would prefer that the links were translated, but it does not bother them at all.

More here: vBET Integration with other plugins - vBulletin Enterprise Translator (vBET) (http://www.vbenterprisetranslator.com/forum/vbet-integration-other-plugins/)

This message from google is for your information. They think that you probably have a bad links in the sitemap, They think that is not good for you and you don't know nothing about that,
but you know - this links are redirected (with 301) to the good form and this is good for google and very good for your site (performance).

vBET don't support translation of url in sitemap.

Also, you can not integrate vBET with sitemap - You will have in sitemaps only links of original threads. Google crawl links translated itself (but it will take longer) and you will have translated urls

OK, so the warnings and the duplicates in webmaster tools are not so bad then. I will monitor this as we go.

Thanks for the update.
