    Hi All,

    Please please can somebody help me with my concerns....

    I have a Magento website with a Wordpress blog. When my site went live, my blog was not in a sub folder, so it was basically like http://www.yourdomain.com/blog for example. I decided after I went live, I preferred the dot com as my main extension. This wasn't an issue and a re-direct was put in place from my local extension to the dot com.

    However, all my blog's content was duplicated, and couldn't carry over to the dot com. I was told I would need to have my WP blog in a subfolder. So now it's blog.yoursite.com.

    This seems to be causing me a few issues and I feel things are conflicting with each other. For example, I made some changes to my site last week, and re-submitted a xml sitemap. All pages have come back, except my homepage which has completely disappeared :( I wrote a blog post about one of my main categories, and that particular blog post is ranking instead of my main category on my website. Google keeps changing from ranking my website's category page, and this particular blog post page.

    My concerns are further in doubt when I see that I have both http://www.yoursite.com and http://www.yoursite.com/admin.php. I'm not sure if this is okay? Iff Plus, If I type in the /admin.php at the end of a particular category path it on my website, it will lead me back to my homepage....

    Also my blog is now blog.yoursite.com - with a redirect from the http://www.blog.yousite.com. Not sure if it should be http://www.blog.yoursite.com like my main Magento domain?

    Arghh! Sorry for so many questions. I'm very confused...It's like I have a blog, but it's not having any real benefits to my actual website and causing more harm than good!
