I'm struggling to submit my sitemaps to Google Webmaster Tools. Previously I received report that I have an error in all my sitemaps (the error was at
<image:image> tag as I did not specified necessary link in the sitemap header). After the error was fixed I tried to resubmit the sitemaps but Google Webmaster Tools abused for me again and for the same line number (in my case: line 8, containing
<priority>0.7</priority>). If I click on the sitemap file name - it is downloading OK (previously it was with 'red' header with list of detected errors).
So I really doubt that Google Webmaster Tools loading correct files. How can I make sure?
The beginning of my sitemaps is the following:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9" xmlns:image="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-image/1.1"> <url> <loc>Valid and tested link</loc> <lastmod>2014-02-03</lastmod> <changefreq>monthly</changefreq> <priority>0.7</priority> <image:image> <image:loc>Valid and tested link</image:loc> <image:title>11-word description</image:title> </image:image> </url>
