sitemap help in google
« on: March 16, 2009, 02:44:33 AM »
Ok, so I had my sitemap done up and was able to upload it onto my site, now my only question is when I go to the google webmaster tools it asks the url of the sitemap.  Do I need to create a new webpage and just copy an paste the info from the sitemap into the html in between the body tags or????????

Help!

hi, this may not be right as I am a newbie myself, but if you just type in your web address into the browser and also type in the filename /sitemap.xml it might well pop up so you can see it.

for example in the search bar at the top type in [external links are visible to admins only] and hit return. This is actually your sitemap address. It took me a few weeks to work that our as well!

good luck

not sure if you got all of that message it seems to have cut some of it out. just type in /sitemap.xml after your .co.uk or .com of your full web address.

That's correct - you should submit http://www.domain.com/sitemap.xml URL.

When i enter the url for my site map generated by this website, i enter [external links are visible to admins only] into Google's webmaster tools and it says 'You have entered a URL to a file. Please enter the site URL." ???  I don't understand why I am receiving this error. Can someone please help me?

Thanks!

Hello,

as a first step, you should add your site profile there (entering *website* URL).
Then you add sitemap to it (this time sitemap.xml is entered).

Hi I've just had a similar problem.  I didn't have a public folder but a htdocs folder, I saved the xml sitemap there then when inputting my URL to Google I put /htdocs/xml-sitemap at the end.  Don't know if it's the software I have but it seems to have worked!  :D
