News sitemap does not work with Google News

Postby jmv95 » Fri Apr 12, 2013 5:38 pm


I use Xmap 2.3.3 Beta with plung-in K2 version 1.3 under Joomla 3.0.3.
Googlebot ignores the contents of the XML file generated by your component.

In the documentation of google, sitmap must be generated with the following header

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns=""

Your header is different, the red lines are not in the sitemap XML.

Is this the problem ?

Thanks for yout help
