problem with language/caracters
« on: May 13, 2009, 04:41:55 PM »
Hi!
Dealing with sitemaps for the first time...Don't know WHAT to download since I got a few versions.
 I checked HTML sitemaps (the only one that has a view option)...and that's what I am looking for..but THERE IS A PROBLEM...there are pages that are in greek (along with two other languages) and instead of greek letters in page titles, on the sitemap i see only some weird symbols.Can't download that!

HELP!

And please, have in mind that this is the first time I am doing this so I am probably not that good in with experienced explanations.

thank you!!!!!!!

Hello,

according to sitemap protocol, the links in xml sitemap are "urlencoded' - that is correct and you can feel free to submit this sitemap to Google.

I don't know, it didn't show properly when I tried to put it on the server... All caracters that are not latin, and page titles that have Greek in them, were not shown...

Any other suggestion?

thanks

Hello,

the links in sitemap are not in human-readable format - they are encoded, this is normal and search engines will parse them without problems.
