Sitemap error: Paths don't match
« on: May 06, 2011, 06:48:37 AM »
Hi,

Google Webmaster Tools is giving me a "Paths don't match" Sitemap error. It's saying that my URLs listed inside my Sitemap don't use the www prefix. I checked my file and all URLs do come with a www prefix. Does anyone know what's going on here? Thanks in advance.

Hello,

if your URLs contain www prefix, then make sure that you create site entry in webmaster account as www.domain.com as well (NOT domain.com)

I solved the problem. Apparently my hosting provider created for me a sitemap without me realising it and it contained URLs without the www prefix. When I replaced it with the one created by XML-Sitemaps, the problem was fixed. Thanks for your help.
