[resolved] [Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps] Doubt Regarding Generated XML Sitemap Time (7 posts)

    Hello Sir,

    Hope this message finds you in good health and spirits. I have a doubt and I need your precious support on this:

    Today Only I updated a Post in My Blog at around 2:40 PM IST and my XML Sitemap shows Time as follows:

    <url>
    <loc>http://mrintech.com/ewebguru-web-hosting-review-customer-experience-testimonial</loc>
    <lastmod>2009-10-22T09:08:08+00:00</lastmod>
    <changefreq>monthly</changefreq>
    <priority>0.8</priority>
    </url>

    It's showing 22-October-2009, 09:08 (AM). Is this alright? I am publishing Post with respect to Indian Standard Time (IST), but the Sitemap is showing time earlier than the IST Timing.

    Kindly tell me what I have to change from WordPress Options? I will be very grateful to you :)

    With Best Wishes :)

    Hi,

    the time in the sitemap is always converted to UTC/GMT (+/-0). Would that match the difference to IST?

    Best regards,

    Arne

    Hello Sir,

    Thanks for your Reply. IST Timings are GMT+5:30 Hours ( http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=176 )

    Kindly Tell me what to change. I will be very grateful to you :)

    Wishes :)

    Hi,

    you don't need to change anything, everything is correct :-)

    You can compare the timezones here:
    http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converted.html?month=10&day=22&year=2009&hour=14&min=40&sec=0&p1=176&p2=0

    Your sitemap contains the (correct) UTC/GMT time. Google and other search engines only accept the time in GMT/UTC, thats why its calculated from IST to UTC/GMT.

    Greetings,

    Arne

    Would it be possible to show the local time in the notification message on the administration page?

    I would also find that helpful, apart from that the plug-in works great.
