Hello,

you should submit sitemap.xml to Google, not ror.xml.

ror.xml sitemap is not an RSS feed, the only file that should be submitted to Google is sitemap.xml.

[external links are visible to admins only]
ror.xml sitemap is not an RSS feed, the only file that should be submitted to Google is sitemap.xml.

I am making RSS Feeds out of my ROR.XML file to make them useful to human as well as bots.   ;D

The main problem right now is the ROR namespace file is missing and that link is reported as a 404 error now.

But, that can be overcome by also including the namespace for atom together on same line (which is allowed).

Code: [external links are visible to admins only]
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:ror="http://rorweb.com/0.1/" >
Of course, you also have to add a call to that line near the top:

Code: [external links are visible to admins only]
<atom:link href="http://www.carolinayellow.com/ror.xml" rel="self" type="application/rss+xml" />
You can see an interesting discussion about this very topic I started in the feedvalidator-users newsgroup.

[external links are visible to admins only]

I'd like to see your program enable me to make ROR.XML as an RSS Feed more efficiently if possible.  About only thing it lacks now is a way to have it add <guid isPermaLink="true">URL</guid> in an automated way.  For me (or ANY non-blog web site for that matter), this URL will ALWAYS be exactly the same as <link>URL</link> tag.

Blogs will sometimes have a different GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) when an entry moves from main first page to its archives.  Generally, that's not the case for regular web sites (which also need a way to creat RSS easily).

Please add this as optional feature into your program!  How? New checkbox asks "Add link as GUID in ror.xml?"

If you did, you can also market your program as being a "magic bullet" that can create an RSS feed for ANY site!  WOW!  Your registrations might go up 10+ times - especially if you didn't offer this as a free service (paid only).

Since your program already creates ROR.XML files now, why not extend that to make it even More Powerful? 

Do you see the HUGE potential for this?  ;D

Please let me know what you think about it.

It would be possible with the Standalone sitemap generator since users can modify the xml feed template file.

I already bought stand-alone sitemap generator.  So, I take adding a GUID on each URL is already an option now?

Can you be specific on how and where I would modify it to add the GUID to the ROR.XML?  I can't wait to do it...

Well, actually, I can wait a little bit.   But, I'm anxious to do this and possibly set it up to be done with a cron job.

Kudos to you for including that option and thanks mucho in advance for your assistance to help me pull this off!  ;D

You will have to modify page/sitemap_ror_tpl.xml file for that.
FIND:
Code: [Select]
<link><TVAR URL></link>and add below the code you need.
