Hi

I want to only keep these type of short titles urls in the sitemap

[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

and not these

[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

not sure what to put in the exclude urls

also found a load of these urls being uploaded which were not needed

[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

I have added the following in exclude URLS

customer.php
callback.php
pricematch.php

is this correct

Thanks

Hello,

you can add this in "Exclude URLs" setting:
Code: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
xProd=
customer.php
callback.php
pricematch.php
and recreate sitemap.

Please try to save it with different filename (like sitemapnew.xml) and resubmit.

Another thing to try is to save it as sitemap.xml.gz and then enable gzip compression in generator configuration and recreate sitemap.

I've tried to submit your sitemap to Yahoo and it has been processed correctly. If you can PM me your google webmaster login I'll check this further.

Hello,

possibly Google bot was not able to connect to your server, it is likely that your host also implemented a firewall rule that blocks (may be partially) google bot requests to reduce it's activity.
