Posted Sitemap on Google, They said it wasn’t correct?

I'm using the the Fluid store and Fluid WP themes. When I finished my store and submitted to google, I submitted the url to the sitemap (that was automatically generated in the fluid theme) without putting xml or php on the end.

I tried to resubmit, but google wouldn't allow it. weird. I'm hitting the end of my knowledge rope here.

Anybody know how to fix this?

Thanks, -FN

Why sitemap ranks for some keywords?


In India, for a popular keyword ‘matrimonial’, this sitemap page ( is ranking in 2nd position for long time. Good number of competition is there but how these sitemap is ranking? because these page links to lot of another pages with anchor text √©xample matrimonial’ ?

If a page has a good number of anchor links which points to internal pages, does it increases the source page’s chances of ranking for that specific keyword?

Having anchor links texts like ‘bengali matrimonial’, ‘gujarati matrimonial’, etc increased the ranking of ‘matrimonial’ for the sitemap page?

Otherwise, how the ranking could have been happened?

Submitting sitemap of blogger blog to google search console

In many of the articles, I found that I can submit sitemap of my blogger blog by inputting


as my sitemap url. But when I did this, I got a URL error saying that it couldn’t fetch. I’ve also tried “myblogaddress/sitemap.xml”. None of it works. And on the old search console, it shows pending. Now google automatically index some of my page randomly. So I need to manually input all the pages on URL inspection and check if its indexed and request for index. It takes so much time. It will be very helpful if I can do it by a sitemap.

How can I upload a sitemap to my Google Sites site with a custom URL?

I created a site for an e-portfolio using the new Google Sites. Google sites automatically generates a sitemap for you at, which can then be submitted via Google’s “Search Console”. However, I migrated to a custom URL, and so I no longer have a sitemap at that location. Google Sites does not have FTP support, and applications such as FileZilla can’t access it. I have heard that SML Cloud can make up for this, but I would prefer not to pay $ 5 a month just for a sitemap.

One idea I had is to put my sitemap on a different domain from my site, but I am not sure if this would even work, or where I could go about doing that. Also, if I need to finish making my website and then export it to a different host somehow to be able to use FTP, then I don’t mind doing that either.

Is there any way to put a sitemap on my Google Sites site that has a custom domain?

How will my blogs get crawled without sitemap entry?

I am completely rebuilding a site for a friend of mine, and am in the process of completing the
blog section. I’m not using wordpress, however I have been studying the source code on pages
that utilize wordpress and yoast.

I have a question: Is there any way to ensure, or help to make more likely, that Google crawls
the blog posts, even though all the blogs obviously cannot be included in the sitemap file?
