Hi when I look at the googlke webmaster tools for my sitemap I see the following error which is blocking google from using the site map to index my site:

Quote
Paths don't match
We've detected that you submitted your Sitemap using a URL path that includes the www prefix (for instance, [external links are visible to admins only]). However, the URLs listed inside your Sitemap don't use the www prefix (for instance, [external links are visible to admins only]).

How can I fix this? The [external links are visible to admins only] should be the correct url, why is it not showing in the sitemap?

many thanks for your help

Geoffrey

Hello,

what is your sitemap URL?

Looks like you need to create new site entry in webmaster tools, with domain.com URL (without www), in case if currently you have it created as www.domain.com

Thanks have done that and attached the same sitemap to the url and submitted it. The images and mobile sitemaps pass muster am now waiting on the general sitemap to do the same.
