We were unable to read your Sitemap. It may contain an entry we are unable to recognize. Please validate your Sitemap before resubmitting.

I am also getting an error from Google Webmaster when trying to submit mkress SEO sitemap.  The error message:

"We encountered an error while trying to acess your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit."  (See screenshot 1)

It says the URL is restricted by robots.txt but I'd prefer not to delete my robots.txt file since it protects my folders.  How do I fix this?

@xmam68
that is not my sitemap mod you are using, my mod is called "kitsitemap" in url


@pols1337
robots.txt tells search engines to index OR to not index your site. (hast nothing to do with security).
It does not make sense to disallow google to index your site and on the other side submit your site in google webmaster tools via sitemap.
If you post the content of your robots.txt here I can tell you what's wrong...
but looks like your side is not present in google, regarding this error message

mkress

@all others having problems


have you really submitted this link .../index.php?action=kitsitemap;xml  to google webmaster tools (the ";xml" is the important part)?
if so please tell me links to your domains so I can check it (there are often compatibility issues with portal mods)

I have the same problems (google telling me that my sitemap is not in the right format).

Here the link: http://www.buehnenlinks.de [nofollow]

XML Parsing Error: no element found
Location: http://www.sadedel.net/index.php?board=1.0&action=kitsitemap;xml [nofollow]
Line Number 1, Column 39:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Will fix it and submit a new version of the mod...

Looks nice, but what with Child Boards under Child Boards ?
I cant see them.
I only can see the First Level if child Boards.

mkress

Hey mkress,

This worked great for me until I updated to 2.2 and now I am receiving this error in webmaster tools. "Sitemap contains urls which are blocked by robots.txt." My robot.txts are set wide open to allow and I tried downgrading to 2.1 but that didn't seem to help. Any ideas?

@mkress

Thank you for updating your Sitemap modification.  It now works with Google webmaster tools.  If I can make another suggestion, perhaps you should write in your instructions for users that they should submit the XML version to Google Webmaster tools.  I think that would help alleviate a lot of the confusion in this help board  ;)

@mkress:

Thanks. Now Google likes my sitemap.

Once i have submitted it to google. Found each board xml in-turns list there topics perfectly.

But our old sitemap mod used to list maximum only to 50,000 urls. Google also warned me to list multiple pages of 50,000 each and rejected my old sitemap.

Great work admin. I noticed a sitemap in your blog. Do you have blog sitemap plugins also. And could you share that with us for our blogs.
