Solved: The site DOES NOT open without www

How to Solve Site Down or Unavailable Problem in AdSense?

This is very important that your site must Automatically be redirected from non-www (https://example.com) to www (https://www.example.com) when you try to open it in a browser.

If your site will not automatically redirect from non-www to www then AdSense will NOT approve your site, they will send a “site down or unavailable” issue.

In this post, you will learn how you can fix the Site Down or Unavailable problem for AdSense and also how you can redirect your site from non-www to www. Please read every point carefully.

NOTE: If you have purchased the Domain name from Google then CLICK HERE to solve your Site Down or Unavailable problem.

Redirect from non-www to www – Blogger

To solve the above issue, you have to make the following changes in your Blogger settings and DNS management settings

  1. First of all, Go to your Blogger Dashboard > click on settings > Scroll down to the “Publishing” section > in the publishing section> turn on “Redirect domain“.
Redirect domain in Blogger
Turn on: example.com To www.example.com
  1. If your blog is still not redirecting from non-www (https://example.com) to www (https://www.example.com) then go through the following steps:.

If you have set up the Domain Forwarding in your DNS management settings just to redirect from non-www to www then remove it right now.

  1. Now check the DNS Records and look, if there is any ‘A’ record, Name (@), and value (Parked). As shown below in the picture.
A Parked record in DNS
Remove this ‘A’ record if found

If you find the above record then click on the Edit icon and delete this record. Refresh the page.

  1. Now check if you have added these 4 ‘A’ Records in the DNS records as shown in the picture below.

Add these, if not added already

If you have not added the above shown ‘A’ records then you should add them immediately. If you don’t do it then your website will not be able to redirect from non-www to www.

You can read this article on how to set up a custom domain with Blogger very correctly.

Now check that, you have added the following two ‘CNAME‘ records in your ‘DNS records’ or not, Most probably you would have added these two CNAME records.

(Optional): Now one more very important thing you have to do that is, verify your Domain Property in Google Search Console, sometimes it is automatically added by Google. Read this article on how to add or verify Domain Property in Google Search Console.

After 10 – 20 minutes of setting up all these things. You will see that your site is now started to redirecting from non-www (https://example.com) to www (https://www.example.com). That means, now your site is ready to re-apply for AdSense.

But I will recommend that you should post 1 or 2 articles, then after 1 or 2 days, you should apply again for AdSense.

If you still have any questions regarding this then feel free to ask in the comment section below.

    I've checked your site, you've set everything well. I think you should re-apply for AdSense after 1 or 2 days. And I'm not sure about the main reason for rejection of yoyr site.

    Your site's template may be responsible for this disapproval. I'm not sure whether or not your template is the reason for the disapproval, but it could be. Because at the beginning when I created my blog, I used the same type of template that you and my blog rejected by AdSense for the reason "valuable inventory: no content" and when I changed the template I got AdSense approval. So I think you should change the template till AdSense approval. Once your site is approved, then you can restore your template if you wish.

  15. Abhishek

    If your domain is blogspot domain then you should not have Site down or Unavailable problem.

    Any of your posts are not indexed in Google, even your site is not indexed. I think you need to submit your site & sitemap to Google Search Console.

  16. I have submitted the site map as english-generalknowledge.blogspot.com/sitemap.xml.

    Status is success
    URL archives are accurate : 46

    But still indexing is not being done
    URL is not on Google is showing.

  17. I have already tried many times but they r not indexing it they are putting me in queue while they are saying your site has no error
    What should I do now?
    And how can I make a sitemap?
