Hi,

In the Google webmaster tools i’m getting Parsing errors in my main sitemap_post_1.xml, sitemap_post_2.xml, sitemap_post_3.xml, sitemap_post_4.xml and sitemap_x-portfolio.xml. 

error description: “We were unable to read your Sitemap. It may contain an entry we are unable to recognise. Please validate your Sitemap before resubmitting.”

I have the same problem on another website but with the basic All in One SEO Pack.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Karls

Hi, thank you for your reply.

I removed and added again also resubmitted the sitemaps but still, Google tells me that there is

Parsing error
We were unable to read your Sitemap. It may contain an entry we are unable to recognise. Please validate your Sitemap before resubmitting.

in the https://www.bombonieres.com.gr…..post_2.xml at line 236

in the https://www.bombonieres.com.gr…..post_4.xml at line 342

in the https://www.bombonieres.com.gr…..tfolio.xml at line 2789

I tried to open the above xml sitemaps in different browser but with no luck, I cannot open these. Did you managed to open any of this?

Thanks,
Karls

Hi Steve, thank you for the tip. I changed the pagination from 1000 to 500 on both website as well, removed the sitemaps from webmaster tools, re-added and resubmitted again. No change for now, parsing errors still showing up in both websites.

I opened a topic in the Google Webamster Central Help Forum: https://productforums.google.c…..webmasters

I’ll keep you updated.
Thank you,
Karls

Hi,

From  Google Webamster Central Help Forum, Peter Nikolow gold product expert said:

i’ve check they and they really have some issues.
 
Image Enlarger
 
And here is explanation why this happens: https://support.google.com/web…..3668?hl=en
“Non-alphanumeric and non-latin characters. We require your sitemap file to be UTF-8 encoded (you can generally do this when you save the file). As with all XML files, any data values (including URLs) must use entity escape codes for the characters listed in the table below.  A sitemap can contain only ASCII characters; it can’t contain upper ASCII characters or certain control codes or special characters such as * and {}. If your sitemap URL contains these characters, you’ll receive an error when you try to add it.
Character Escape Code
Ampersand & &”
Seems that you need to contact AIO plugin author in order to resolve this.

Hi Steve,

thanks for your reply. Can you let me know how can I open the sitemaps? I cannot open these with browsers anymore.

Also what changed and google suddenly does not like my old posts?

Thanks, I managed to open the sitemaps.

The error is in the line https://newman.com.gr/sitemap_post.xml

line 273: <image:caption>Επώνυμη συσκευασία κοσμημάτων: Χάρτινες τσάντες με χρυσοτυπία & Σουέτ πουγκιά με βαθυτυπία</image:caption>
line 274: <image:title>Επώνυμη συσκευασία κοσμημάτων: Χάρτινες τσάντες με χρυσοτυπία & Σουέτ πουγκιά με βαθυτυπία</image:title>

Why the image:title is encoded and the image:caption not?

Hello again,

this parsing errors makes my sitemaps unreadable for Google in general? When error occurs like this the submitted sitemap stop working?

I started to make changes in my content (fixing image captions by removing spec.characters like &) but is too many and I already spend a full day on it and didn’t finish.

Regards,
Karls
