Understanding domain setup error messages

When attempting to set up a Search Engine Visibility account, you may encounter errors. Locate the error to diagnose the problem and see how to fix it.

We can't validate this site because it appears the site has not been published or has no content.

It looks like you haven't yet published your website — or the page is empty. Double check the page and publish your page.

We could not find this domain on your account.

Double check the domain you're using (e.g. greatsite.com). It may be owned by someone else or you don't have this particular`godaddysites.com` domain in your account.

Your site's domain is masking another URL, which can hurt your search engine ranking.

Edit your domain forwarding to forwarding only. See set up my domain name.

Your site is on a temporary domain, which doesn't work with SEO.

The domain you are trying to use is a temporary domain for Managed WordPress sites (`myftpupload.com`). Why use a temporary domain name with Managed WordPress?

We cannot setup an account for this domain because one already exists.

The domain is already associated with another SEV account you have. Log into the already set up account — or decide if you should can cancel that account so you can use the new one.
