I am currently trying out the gsitecreawler and it is up to 4378 URLs and counting!  8O I think it is trying to include the entire WU through this page: http://www.cavecountryweather.com/wx13.php I paused it for now until I can figure out how to have it stop at my page.

Easy fix for gsite crawler:
click the "Filter" tab, click "add"
add your URL http://www.cavecountryweather.com/wx13.php

click "URL list" tab, click "Refresh Table" button,
highlight all your http://www.cavecountryweather.com/wx13.php URLs (you highlight many at once by click on the first one, then scroll to the last one, hold down the Shift key and click last one, they all turn yellow)
click the "Delete" button on the gsite crawler screen

now click (Re)Crawl - This Project, wait until the crawlers are idle again and then click "Refresh Table" button
Make sure all is well.
If you have the FTP settings setup in gsitecrawler you can now click "Generate - Google Sitemap-File" let it save (overwrite), then upload to FTP, then Submit to google all automatically.

Ok, I think i did it correctly. I created and uploaded a sitemap.xml file. I then changed my robots.txt file to read as follows......
User-agent: *
Disallow: /log
Disallow: /xxx
http://www.evansville-weather.com/sitemap.xml

Is that all I need to do?

Bill,

Your xml file is not in the proper format.  How did you create it?

All you need is Time, Aptitude and Desire ... and you can build just about anything...

I copied this site, and changed as I thought it was needed.
http://www.carterlake.org/sitemap.xml

Basically I just changed the url's and the frequency. then deleted the pages that I don't have.

You have to look at the Source of of the page, not the output of the page as you may see it when you look at it with a browser...

There are no Dashes in the "source"

Google is stripping the ".php"  on my Contact page Link and its saying its a bad link. As you can see in my sitemap file, it shows the .php

http://www.snoqualmieweather.com/sitemap.xml

Anyone know why Google might be doing this? Ive resubmitted my sitemap through there webtools, but that hasnt helped at all. Thanks, Mark
