Sitemap file sitemap.xml fails validator check.
Posted by Peter M, Last modified by on 12 January 2011 01:31 PM

I get an error when I submit my sitemap to google.

Error: Expected whitespace after public id  in unnamed entity at line 1 char 55 of http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/
http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/ has no elements???

The validation tool is trying to load the specified namespace as an xml file which it is not, and does not need to be.


Google will correctly read your sitemap.xml file.
