Hey Rolly, I see that also but it is still mixing the TG url with the confusing cache and title of my first shop > not on your search???? It will bring up the TG site... if you click on the url. I'd be thrilled if it would only drop the LOL cached text and title. Thrilled!

Heaven only knows I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer with tech stuff. :rolleyes: I have less aptitude for this than anything else I have tried in my life, and I am self taught in many areas so its very frustrating. My apologies there, I am not very well cut out for this task.

Per ~ I have done as you said with the meta keywords and description, then I re published. I do have a Google webmaster account, and I am still trying to submit that site map. Thanks for that suggestion, it does make sense to me. We'll see.
Thanks again to all for trying to help.:)

It will all come together. Are you having trouble with the sitemap?:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

Yes I am Rolly. I have worn out support today ~ they are going to come looking for me soon. Again. But I'm evasive lol

I made fresh site maps today for both sites : tgperennials.com and lolcostumejewelry.com. I uploaded them to their respective site tabs on SDrive this afternoon, after being prodded to double check to be sure xml files were on the sites tabs.

When I tested the site maps on G's webmaster tools, they 'can't be found'. BUT the 49 pages on the new tgperennials site were accessed over 100 times today ~ it had to be the bots, because it was not me and no one knows about the site. Which makes no sense if they can't find the site map??? And for the first time tgperennials is bringing up a legit search:

TANGLEWOOD GARDENS PERENNIALS - DAYLILIES ~ EYED ...
www.tgperennials.com/viewcategory.php?groupid=18
ABOUT DAYLILY SIZES: The industry standard for selling daylily divisions is a double fan, or two fan shaped leaf sections and the rhizomes or toes that they are ...



So it looks like you were right and it will all work out thank heaven!
I guess what I am having trouble with is the file path and since I will need it over and over I'd better learn it so I can try to get them to acknowledge the site maps.

Can you help me with that please? I promise I'll be good for a while :D

Google gives me this much:

http://www.tgperennials.com/

I have tried a multitude of combos, only to be rejected.

Thanks for your trouble!

Upon reflection, maybe not the best idea for public forum...

Where is your sitemap xml and what did you name it?

It is on that shop's Site tab, which is where I thought it should go.
It was just named sitemap.xml and I left it that way.

It seems that the sitemap.xml file for both shops is the same size, though the shops are vastly different in size. It seems that Sitemapper only made this 1 xml file, though I mapped both shops. I am not sure if that is right, being new to this?

Yes, they keep telling me it can't be found. I have used many 'file paths' and all are rejected. But it does seem that the bots crawled the pages anyway, because I had over 100 looks that day ~ out of the blue after weeks of 0 looks. I don't think it was a coincidence.
