Hi All.

I am new to Web Designing and trying to submit my first website to Googlebut I keep getting an Error and the message: Sitemap errors and warnings
Line Status Details

Your Sitemap does not appear to be in a supported format. Please ensure it meets our Sitemap guidelines and resubmit. Help Problem detected on: Apr 20, 2009

I am using a Web Builder provided by my Web Host. What am I doing wrong and how do I correct this?



With a normal host, you don't have to do anything. Indexing is automatic when the following are present:

- The host does not prohibit robots from searching it.

- The home page is named according to the home page rule the host uses.

- Each page can be reached by following a link or a chain of links from the home page. (A page that is not linked to and is not the home page will not be found.)

My pages usually index within a day or two, depending on how long it takes for the robots traversing the entire internet to stumble upon it.

read the hints, from the people blamed for search engines
You need a sitemap submitted to google,
or inbound links from other sites
to speed up the googlebots index your site.
MidiMagic is correct, once you get googled, yahooed, and asked
re-indexing is quite quick

re: inbound links,
link exchange services have a negative effect, dondoit
