Problems with sitemap-images
« on: July 04, 2011, 12:37:47 PM »
I am new with xml-sitemaps and use the program to create the sitemap for my photodatabase.
A typical excerpt from my sitemap would be:

<image:loc>[external links are visible to admins only]</image:loc>
       <image:caption>Herbie Hancock </image:caption>
     </image:image>
</url>


Which EXIF/IPTC information from the photos does xml-sitemaps use to create <image:caption> ?

I have the problem that some of the photos do not have text in this field, even though the photo contains all the information.

Secondly, how is it possible to use  the automatic extension of my sitemap to get further information (for example <image:title> ) ?

Finally, the validate xml sitemap with the appropriate SEO tool returns the following report, which sounds slightly negative:

Schema validating with XSV 3.1-1 of 2007/12/11 16:20:05

Not recognised as W3C XML Schema or RDDL: html

Problems with the schema-validity of the target

[external links are visible to admins only]: Invalid per src-resolve: can't find a type for wildcard-matching child {http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-image/1.1}:image

[external links are visible to admins only]: Invalid per src-resolve: can't find a type for wildcard-matching child {http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-image/1.1}:image

and so on ...

Thanks in advance

Hello,

it uses "alt" or "title" attribute of corresponding <img> tag that includes the image on page.
