    Anyone else having problems submitting google maps?

    Even though I've done this before I'm really having some problems getting a site verified and a map submitted.

    Every freaking time I go to verify the site it says it cant find the .html page (and yes before you ask its in the right place and named EXACTLY what they show (I copy and pasted it) and no my robots.txt doesnt block them, it's the exact same one I have on my other sites that work fine.

    When I look in my logs it shows the hit and an http status of 200 (OK) then right after that hit I have another request from Google for another file called noexist_[myfile_name].html which of course returns a 500 cause (of course) the damn thing doesnt exist!

    If I hit the verify button 3 or 4 times it will eventually come back with a "pending verification, we are having problems with our network" .. when I come back later it says not verified! AGGRAVATING the PISS out of me!

    Ive been trying to get this done for 3 days now!

    I have had this before - the only way I could get it to work was to disable my htaccess - which had this in:
    Code:
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .html .htm
    errordocument 404  error.htm
    Once I had done this it worked first time and verified - so I can only assume it was something to do with the htaccess.

    The wierd thing is - I have sites with exactley the same htaccess file which verified perfectly
    I Do Website Design - but I am here to learn all about publishing

    Yeah all my sites are set up exactly the same and they are all fine except this one! Freaking weird to say the least.

    I'll give that a try, at this point I'll try anything!
