Not sure if this is the right category but here is the issue...Couple years back bought and hosted a website with GoDaddy...let my site lapse but always paid to keep the domain. Also have a Google my Business (GMB) account that had previously had the website linked.  Assuming since the site was down they removed it from my Business big deal


Fast forward to now, have relaunched my page using the same URL but when attempting to add to GMB it is not clear explanation as to why it wont take.  Went to the Search Console and found that there was a redirect "error" (301) on &  I also added (google has my page listed as this) as a property (kind of a rookie her so bear with me if this isn't what to do). Looking at what they said the first two sites both are redirected to the 3rd....not even sure if this has anything to do with anything but figured I'd mention...


Long story short, GMB is isn't accepting my site and hoping someone has some ideas why Smiley Happy Thanks in advance for any ideas.



-Hoping Helmut can help lol

Thank you for the response...some crawl stats just came back with the following "errors"... none of these are paths on my website?
