I submitted the sitemap to Google on Nov 24,2018 and it says 'sitemap could not be read'. I added the "/sitemap.xml" to the end of my url but it just says 'couldn't fetch'. My website has the .myshopify.com. Does that prevent my site from being indexed through the sitemap?
I have read and re-read the help pages as well as this forum on how to submit a sitemap and cannot figure out the problem.
Would appreciate some insight.
What is the URL of the website in Google Search Console? I presume you've successfully verified it given you are trying to submit the sitemap.
I have never tried to submit a sitemap for a myshopify.com (having done over a hundreds for stores with their own domains.)
I would say just buy your own domain. They cost very little these days, are important for branding, and will help other marketing.
Hey mate I have found a fix for your issue, as I had a similar problem with my electric kick scooter site. Go to shopify admin -> domains -> and check what domain you have listed and that it matches with the one registered in Google Search Console. My issue was that I registered the WWW.domain.com version of my domain in GSC, but the HTTPS://domain.com version in shopify. Just change them so they match and you'll be all good to go!
