Goolge can't find sitemap - 404

Postby unleash.it » Mon Jan 21, 2008 10:25 am

Hi, I'm using the latest X-map 1.04 and it's working fine, but for some reason Google can't find it. When I click on it, it shows up fine so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Here's a link to it:

http://www.tomanddaves.com/index.php?option=com_xmap&sitemap=1&view=xml&no_html=1

This is the error that I'm getting:

General HTTP error: 404 not found
We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit.

I read somewhere that the urls have to be encoded so I've also tried submitting it like this:

index.php?option=com_xmap&sitemap=1&view=xml&no_html=1

But that doesn't work either. Thanks for any help.

Hi,

Even i am facing the same problem, the url for my sitemap is

http://www.trendzmatter.com/sitemap

Google says it cannot find the page - 404 error?
If you have found the solution please tell us about it.

Since I posted, I figured out that one links in the sitemap, I believe to the sitemap itself, is broken:

http://www.tomanddaves.com/index.php?Itemid=68&option=
(all broken links on my site redirect to the homepage)

I succesfully submited my sitemap but only by making a static version and fixing the link:

http://www.tomanddaves.com/sitemap.xml

Unfortunately, it's no longer dynamic or linked with XMAP. My guess is that it has to do with enabling Joomla 1.5 native SEF. I would love to know if there's a way we can patch. Thank you. XMAP is a great sitemap component and it's almost working for me.
