Google not accepting sitemap no matter what I do
« on: August 27, 2009, 02:41:19 PM »
I have been working on this for a few months now, trying everything I can think of.

Here is the sitemap:
[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

What is driving me crazy is that when I submit the sitemap I get different errors, and none of them make sense.

I usually get a generic formatting error that really doesn't help me since I know the xml file is valid.

With my latest generation I get :

"Parsing error line 2368: We were unable to read your Sitemap. It may contain an entry we are unable to recognize. Please validate your Sitemap before resubmitting."

This is the line that is giving the problem...


I'm really scratching my head, it seems like google is making up these errors lol

Any advice would be very helpful.

please try to save sitemap in the file with different name and resubmit it to Google (may be it's cached or something), also you can try to create a small sitemap file with limited number of URLs (like 5-10) and check if it works.
