How can I fix that? our main website is www.litespace.io but we are also directing https://litespace.io to https://www.litespace.io to
Your domain redirects, canonical, and sitemap all look fine, with
www. as the primary.
Usually in GSC when I see that it’s because of how the GSC property was setup. If you created the property to
https://litespace.io you might get weird results.
Generally I’d create it now as a domain property,
litespace.io which seems to give more consistent reporting.
So on webflow we should set it up as https://litespace.io instead of https://www.litespace.io?
In addition, I have an issue regarding google not crawling our meta description, could this lead to that as well?
No, Webflow is setup fine. A “domain property” refers to how you setup the property on GSC.
Setting up GSC with a property of
https://litespace.io is a different thing from setting up GSC with a “domain property” of
When you setup a non-domain property, GSC sees litespace.io and www.litespace.io as two unrelated websites. Domain properties fix that.
No, that’s more likely related to your previous site and robots.txt blocking. I answered on that question as well.
I’d like to jump into this with a similar issue. I just created a GSC account for my website www.musicverter.com. However, when I submitted my first sitemap, GSC told me I had a few pages with redirects. They are as follows:
It seems as if I need to add a new property within GSC to have reporting be consistent. If that’s the case, what domain would you recommend I create a new property with? I believe my current property within GSC is set up as the following:
Thanks in advance!
The key is consistency.
- Generally, use the domain property so that all the
wwwsubdomains are properly consolidated into a single reporting property. It’s a good approach.
- In Webflow, make sure you have a default domain set, typically the
- Republish, and your auto-gen sitemap XML should show that default domain in its URLs.
- When you submit your sitemap to GSC, submit the canonical path;
As long as you are consistent in your use of the default domain name, you shouldn’t have these redirect issues.
