Sitemap not submitting to google?
« on: July 01, 2009, 04:15:11 AM »
I am using wordpress and used a google wordpress theme but when i went to submit it to google it says its an unsupported format.

I then went tothe sitemap generator here and that didnt work either.

www.metalobsession.net/sitemap.xml

If it does help the website is http://metalobsession.net
if you type in www.metalobsession.net etc for any page it takes you too the http://metalobsession.net

Could anyone have a look for me?
Thanks

k someone told me to change this so i did.
and it still didnt work.

Try changing the urlset tag to:

<urlset xmlns="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84 http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84/sitemap.xsd">

Looks like y ou have a wordpress plugin that overwites your sitemap, try to disable that plugin, regenerate sitemap with xml-sitemaps.com and put it on your site.
