Video Sitemaps In Google Webmaster Tools? Ever hear of that?

Discussion in 'Google' started by lakelandprinting, Aug 8, 2010.

    I was poking around webmaster tools and I noticed a link that said "video sitemap". I click ed it, and google says "Video Sitemaps Errors. We are constantly updating our data, so please keep checking back with us to make sure your sitemaps are healthy."

    They want my video sitemap to be located at "mywebsitedotcom/google.sitemap.php"

    Has anyone heard of this? It's under the "labs" tab when signed into webmaster tools.

    Yeah its been there a few days... My guess is that it will show any errors in video sitemaps (if there are any).

    I'm not sure what you mean by "They want my video sitemap to be located at "mywebsitedotcom/google.sitemap.php""

    Mine says...

    labs-videositemaps.jpg

    I usually add the sitemaps to my robots.txt as well, like...

    User-agent: *
    Disallow:
    sitemap: http://www.example.com/sitemap.xml
    sitemap: http://www.example.com/videofeed.xml
    Code (markup):
    So yeah, I probably wouldn't worry unless you get errors in that part of WMTs.

    Cheers
