generator finds only 3 pages and I have 40 or so
« on: September 15, 2008, 05:12:02 PM »
I ran the program over my site and it only finds three pages.  How come it does not crawl the menu/index on the left and bottom and map those pages?  My site is [external links are visible to admins only]


Thanks!

Hello,

The links in menu bar are pointing to non-www domain, so you should specify "domain.com" as Starting URL instead of "www.domain.com".

Thanks Hero!  It now indexed 67 pages. 

I'm not out of the woods yet as I submitted to google and it gave an error saying it is not in the correct file format.  The actual error is "XML Parsing Error: syntax error
Location: [external links are visible to admins only]
Line Number 2, Column 1"


 I saved it as "sitemap.xml" and here it is (I removed most of the middle sections but kept the top and bottoms):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <urlset xmlns="[external links are visible to admins only]" xmlns:xsi="[external links are visible to admins only]" xsi:schemaLocation="[external links are visible to admins only] [external links are visible to admins only]">
- <!--  created with Free Online Sitemap Generator www.xml-sitemaps.com
  -->
- <url>
  <loc>[external links are visible to admins only]</loc>
  <priority>1.00</priority>
  <changefreq>daily</changefreq>
  </url>
- <url>
  <loc>[external links are visible to admins only]</loc>
  <priority>0.80</priority>
  <changefreq>daily</changefreq>
  </url>
- <url>
  <loc>[external links are visible to admins only]</loc>
  <priority>0.41</priority>
  <changefreq>daily</changefreq>
  </url>
  </urlset>

I am going to delete line 2 and see what happens.

It is ok now.  I was using the sitemap gen wrong.  Google is fine with my map now.  Thanks for making this software!!!
