Problem with google Sitemap -
« on: May 21, 2008, 10:40:39 AM »
Hi there,

I've generated a sitemap using the free tool and uploaded to [external links are visible to admins only]sitemap.xml

Google is reporting Unsupported file format
Your Sitemap does not appear to be in a supported format. Please ensure it meets our Sitemap guidelines and resubmit.   Found: May 20, 2008

Any thoughts on the problem.

Thanks,

Zorba.

Thanks Oleg, your help is appreciated.

When you say you have submitted it to google, how have you done this? I'd like to be able to repeat it.

Does that imply it is a problem with how my web hosting is configured or the way the formatted.
