Google Sitemap Validation fails
« on: February 01, 2008, 10:34:36 PM »
I created a very simple sitemap

http://www.locanto.com.au/sitemaps.xml

But Google will not accept the file. I can't figure out the reason why.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Peter

PS: Submitting the sitemap from your online tool works. But unfortunately not the standalone version.

seems like Google has a problem with the header

I changed the header to

<urlset xmlns="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84">

and now it works.

Hello Peter,

it should work with default sitemap header, can you make a copy of "old" sitemap on your host so that I can check it?
