For my site, parttimeselling.com

 

I have submitted my site map with GWT. However, I keep getting this message in GWT and cannot figure it out.

 

Missing XML tag
This required tag is missing. Please add it and resubmit.
Parent tag: urlset
Tag: url
 
thoughts?
Thanks!

Hi Island Jay,

The reason you are getting that error is because the pattimeselling.com/sitemap_post_format.xml.gz file is empty.  It’s empty because you aren’t using that format on your site, but it’s being included in your sitemap because you have checked Enable Sitemap Indexes in the XML Sitemap settings.  You only need to use indexes if you have 50,000 URLs or more on your site, or if your sitemap is 10MB or more.  

If you need to use sitemap indexes, uncheck Format in Taxonomies.  If you do not need to use indexes, uncheck Enable Sitemap Indexes.  Then you can resubmit your sitemap via Google Webmaster Tools using the directions below.  

Resubmit a Sitemap using Webmaster Tools

  1. On the Webmaster Tools Home page, click the site you want.
  2. Under Optimization, click Sitemaps.
  3. Select the Sitemap(s) you want to resubmit, and then click the Resubmit Sitemap button
