Google and sitemap problems
Posted on 2013-06-22
A unique problem has emerged with the sitemap.xml for Google.
the following error line keeps coming up in Google Webmaster tools in the Optimization/Sitemap section
This Sitemap index was submitted Jun 22, 2013, and processed Jun 22, 2013.
URLs ready for crawling. More information.
Sitemaps in this index
Sitemap errors Index errors
Show 1-1 of 1
Type Processed Issues Items Submitted Indexed
I have done the following to no avail
1. Delete the sitemap from Google and re-added it but the message keeps coming up.
2. I have checked in the directories on the site and the index.xml is no longer there because I located it and deleted it BEFORE taking the steps above.
3. When I do a Sitemap test this message comes up
Type: Sitemap index
Number of children in this Sitemap index 1
Error details: No errors found.
4. when I go back to view the sitemap area there is still the same message displaying as in 1 above.
This after I have refreshed the page and AFTER I have done a Google fetch.
I cannot understand what is going on. All this takes place after the submission of the sitemap has moved on from the "Pending" state.
Can you help solve this please?
