    googlebot is looking for pages that i had in an old sitemap. since then i have moved those pages and updated my sitemap and resubmitted many times and yet, googlebot seems to follow the old sitemap which is over 2 weeks old.

    Do a 301 redirect from the old pages, if you moved them to new URLs to keep the PR.

    somehow my sitemap got messed up and some of the urls got removed. the pages itself didn't move. it's a new site so i'm not that worried about it. i am using a txt file but, i'm switching over to xml so the engines can be updated automaticly.
