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
- Unsupported file format
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?

Thanks

Jayse

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.

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
