Please help - Google sitemap error
« on: October 18, 2010, 03:16:25 PM »
I have been struggling with this for a while now. Every time I submit my sitemap to Google it returns an error.
After checking my sitemap's validity against this web site it returned the following; "19 schema-validity problems were found in the target". Please see attached snap shot for the first few lines of the validity check.

Can you please help me understand what is wrong with my sitemap, and more importantly how to fix it?
I used Goomla 1.5 site builder, and Jcrawler extension for generating the sitemap.
It should be stated that I am a novice when it comes to web site building.

Thank you very much in advance.

that sitemap1.xml file doesn't look like created with our sitemap generator, you should use sitemap.xml included on details page:
