XML Sitemap Error
« on: April 15, 2009, 04:06:38 AM »
Ive been reading previous messages and I can see there has been people with the same problem as me.

1) Once the sitemap has been generated, Ive downloaded it, saved it in my computer as sitemap.xml  and uploaded it in the root folder of my site. (uploaded = dragged the xml file to the root folder) Does it work that way too?.

I have not copied and pasted it. And the error that Google gives me is the unsopported file format.

You suggest in other messages to check "the .htaccess file in domain root - looks like something redirects all googlebot requests to external site":....BUT, Im afraid I dont know exactly what you mean by "htaccess file......"
to check if I can solve the problem.

2) Once the sitemap file is generated how can I check its URL??

Thank you very much for your help.

Ok, maybe Ive messed it up in Tools for webmaster in Google where you send the sitemap.

[external links are visible to admins only] ...................... send sitemap.

What Ive inserted in the blank box is the different pages .html  Ive got in my site.... (???) Not the actual sitemap ...
What I have to do is: [external links are visible to admins only]

Sorry for the inconvenience............
