    Hi,

    I submitted one of my site and google returned “Unsupported file format”.
    So I removed just about everything and left

    
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <urlset xmlns="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84">
    <url>
    <loc>http://www.journalhome.com/ </loc>
    </url>
    </urlset>
    
    Code (markup):
    But I still get “Unsupported file format”, what could I be doing wrong?

    The file is saved using the UNIX format and UTF-8.

    Sorry, my bad the .htaccess was redirecting to the 404 file.

    Try one of the free Google site map creators. Personally I like this one: http://www.colizer.com/online-sitemap-generator.php as it also checks for broken links.

    Thanks, but I have a script to create my own sitemap. That way I can limit the amount of useless URL that users might enter incorrectly.
