Sitemap Errors? I got em.... Over 5k of them! Please help a noob

    So.... I recently started a new blog to have a place for my referrals to have a place to go for news and other updates regarding stuff I am involved with online. I truly had no aspirations of getting additional traffic but the more I thought about it, I figured "Why not?".

    I set up the sitemap with the help of the host, got verified, and everything I thought was fine. When I logged into web-tools I checked and found that my sitemap has 5,436 errors!!

    [TABLE="class: GOMIEEBBMV GOMIEEBBB3"]
    [TR="class: GOMIEEBBFU GOMIEEBBMU GOMIEEBBPU"]
    [TD="class: GOMIEEBBEU GOMIEEBBGU GOMIEEBBNU GOMIEEBBAV"][/TD]
    [TD="class: GOMIEEBBEU GOMIEEBBGU GOMIEEBBDI GOMIEEBBNU GOMIEEBBAV GOMIEEBBOU"][/TD]
    [TD="class: GOMIEEBBEU GOMIEEBBGU GOMIEEBBNU GOMIEEBBAV"][/TD]
    [TD="class: GOMIEEBBEU GOMIEEBBGU GOMIEEBBNU GOMIEEBBAV"][/TD]
    [TD="class: GOMIEEBBEU GOMIEEBBGU GOMIEEBBNU GOMIEEBBAV"][/TD]
    [TD="class: GOMIEEBBEU GOMIEEBBGU GOMIEEBBBV GOMIEEBBNU GOMIEEBBAV"][/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]
    So I guess my questions are these: What are all these errors from and do they matter? I suppose they must matter since there is the little caution thingy there.

    And is this something I could fix on my own or is this best left to my hosting provider or some pro to fix.

    I read the "Sitemap FAQ's" here but as you might have guessed, most of it goes over my head.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    The issues is that you have broken links in your sitemap. Please review the links in the sitemap and remove the brokenlinks.

    You can fix it your won by updating a new site map to your server.

    I would look at the broken links, remove them and then generate a new site map. Finally re-submit. Dont for get to add a 404 (error page) redirect to your .htacess file to cath all those removed pages
