SiteMap Errors In Google SiteMap Webmaster Tools
« on: August 11, 2011, 02:54:36 AM »
I have used xml-sitemap paid version for a few years now and have enjoyed it regarding the ease of use it provides.  I'm writing about an error that appeared out of nowhere.  I am stumped at this point.

I am receiving the error as follows:

"We've detected duplicate video titles.
We've detected duplicate video titles in your sitemap or feed. Duplicate titles make it difficult for users to discern the content of the video. Make the titles more specific so they better reflect the content of the video."

The thing that is weird is the error is referring to the ror.xml file.  I don't have the video add-on option. So not only is Google reporting errors with video, it is reporting this error in RSS.

Any information is appreciated.  Thank you.

I suppose it's related to have the same titles for multiple pages on your site (and included in ror sitemap), but I'm not really sure why google considered it as video sitemap.
Seems like this started happening recently with rss feeds and might be a temporary glitch:
