Well, it gave me a hell of a time to figure this out. Google webmaster couldn’t verify the sitemap for one of my site. The site has an http: prefix and webmaster was having an www: prefix. I’ve made new sitemaps and uploaded them to no avail. the description in webmaster gives very vague details of the problem. So this morning I set out to figure it out and sure enough after some time I saw the problem.
Now I wish I could just figure out how to make money online.
The above mentioned prefix.
Somehow in webmaster the prefix was changed from http: to www. thus google was not recognizing my site and that caused no information of my site in google either.
I couldn’t find an edit button or anything in webmaster to edit the site’s name so I just added a new site with the http: prefix (http:mysite. whatever) uploaded the webmaster verification script to the root of the site and after that just submitted a new sitemap and webmaster had no trouble verifying it and there they were all my links and info back in google. I just deleted the site with the www. prefix from my webmaster account. Problem solved.
Hope this helps someone having the same problem.
