Problem with adding SITEMAP to google and site configuration

Hello.

I am playing around with the google web master tool that allows you to increase your SEO.

You can add a sitemap so that google can find all your palges more easily.

The only problem is that when i try and add my site, the one that is automatically created by magento, it throws back an error.

The current site map is url is http://www.mydomain.co.uk/catalog/seo_sitemap/category/

The problem being is that google won’t accept this as a sitemap becuase the sitemap must be located at http://www.mydomain.co.uk/.

You can get round this problem by adding the site http://www.mydomain.co.uk/catalog/seo_sitemap

But once its accepted, google throws back an error saying “Your Sitemap does not appear to be in a supported format. Please ensure it meets our Sitemap guidelines and resubmit”

I think it has to be in .xml?

Can anyone help. I think adding your sitemap to search engine is quite import to get the best SEO.

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards

All help greatly appreciated.

If you are talking about this then it is not supported in the current version.

This will be added in later releases of Magento by us or by the community.

The existing site map is only a way for spiders and other bots to crawl your site.

Thanks
