    I have no clue what this is. There were 8 of these.
    Similar errors came up on the other 3 sites I submitted sitemaps for.
    All are hosted on BV.

    There were 2 other errors mentioned.

    1) mailto: sales@ttj.com came up as an error.
    When I publish and submit the sitemap, should I delete the mail to?

    2) Since my domain name is long, when I linked my pages, I did not include www when I linked them. It said all pages without www. was not found(or something like that).

    does anyone know how I can resolve this? do I have to go to every link and put in www?

    Sorry if this is confusing, but I am lost. I also read everythinng about linking but I cannot find the answer. Advise is appreciated.

    You inserted the XML code directly onto your web page, which it NOT the thing to do: after uploading the file to your public_html/ directory, simply create a Text Hyperlink on all your pages (in other words, use a BV textbox and type in XML, and then hyperlink that text), and use the link www.thereadesjournal.com/sitemap.xml to set it right.

    Default to clarify?

    first thanks for the reply, but I am unclear.

    When I use the sitemap generator, I click publish.

    Am I then supposed to put on each page:

    xml and link it to www.thetradesjournal.com/sitemap ? , so all pages link to the sitmap?

    or am I supposed to do that first, and then use the sitemap generator?

    can you see the sitemap which was generated?

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

    Also,

    the diagnostics on Google says the site does not support robots.

    Sorry if this is redundant.

    I personally use independently-created sitemaps just because I know they work flawlessly and because it is not a big deal to use this method whatsoever (seems to be a lot of problems using the "one-click-solutions" features built into BV, and a lot of people losing the ability to understand the "bigger picture" and inter-relationships of skills).

    Maybe you should also? Go to www.xml-sitemaps.com to create yours (using the methods detailed above), upload it to your directory, link it simply , and reap the benefits knowing you are in more control over your website and are not dependent on things that you are clueless as to their effctiveness or methodology: learn by doing, and use that experience to build a bigger picture on.
