« on: December 01, 2008, 07:22:11 PM »
i've got my site up and running, but having a rough time with google
accepting my sitemap file,, it is on my website [external links are visible to admins only] all of my pages had a check under them,, i assume that means they are verified,, but when i tell google to look at the sitemap.xml file , in about 5 minutes i get this error..
http error 500 network unreachable. could someone see if my sitemap.xml file is ok,, i'm made several different ones with various generators, but get the same error,, also will this stop google from crawling my site,,, please help!! i've been messing with this for 3 days...

in case if Error 500 is reported, it means that Google is not even able to access your sitemap, so it's not formatting issue. You should contact your host to resolve the issue, possibly you have requests from Google blocked in some way.
