Xmap and Google Sitemaps

Post by JustinL » Thu Mar 05, 2009 6:41 am

I am using xmap on a joomla 1.0.15 site.

I have created an xml site map and sent it to Google through webmaster tools (couple weeks ago) and it has returned 98 'not found' errors.

A lot of the link errors are from non-sef urls (I use sh404sef).

Could this have anything to do with my joomla admin template (when I click on the page that is linking to the error page, it is not my current template ex. http://metamedretreats.com/index2.php?o ... &Itemid=77)?

Why has xmap not produced an accurate map of my site?

Thanks in advance.

Hi JL...

I think XMap is great extension for creating Sitemap.
For remember that Google 'Need Time' for Reindex / Recrawl All of your site page.
I'm ever like you. I've used XMap and fine work.

Hope this helps. :)

I just installed XMAP on my Joomla installation. The sitemap it generated
only has level 1 links, ie., links that are reachable by one click from the home
page. Each of these links inturn have more links and so on, but they aren't listed by the sitemap. Is there a way I can increase the nesting depth beyond 1?

It gets even worse:

I'm using
Virtuemart 1.1.3;
Xmap 1.2 with Virtuemart Plugin 1.1.1

SEF URL and Apache mod_rewrite enabled + router.php for SEF virtuemart

The XML sitemap is made correctly.

Then I checked with it with

I get that :

The document is NOT well-formed

Google says:

Invalid XML tag

Parent tag:
Problem detected on: urlset

XMap 1.2 fixes some problems with the SEF urls in Joomla 1.5.5 and introduces some new features, then to some issues to be fixed with SEF.
