Your Sitemap tool reports many errors
« on: June 14, 2010, 04:02:16 PM »
Hi all: I use Sitemap generator and decided to run your sitemap verification tool this morning and to my dismay find that there are many errors in my sitemap. Here is an excerpt of the error/s reported.

Is this a problem with my site or a problem with XML-Sitemap generator:
There is much more than posted here but it seems to repeat itself.

Hello,

you should submit sitemap.xml to Google to check that it's parsed correctly: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/dashboard
