    Hello guys, I have submitted this http://www.globaladverts.biz/sitemap_index.xml sitemap at google and bing webmaster tools which consist of the following sitemaps:-
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/post-sitemap.xml
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/page-sitemap.xml
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/ad_listing-sitemap.xml
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/ad_cat-sitemap.xml
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/category-sitemap.xml
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/ad_tag-sitemap.xml

    I have excluded the following taxonomies in my sitemap beacause i dont want them to appear on search engines:-

      Catogies
      Tags
      Format
      Ad tags

    After disabling those the above taxonomies am only using the following sitemaps:-
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/post-sitemap.xml
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/page-sitemap.xml
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/ad_listing-sitemap.xml
    http://www.globaladverts.biz/ad_cat-sitemap.xml

    At first all of the of the sitemaps seem to work just fine but recently while checking on google and bing webmaster tools I saw the following errors on this http://www.globaladverts.biz/ad_cat-sitemap.xml sitemap and the following is the error I encountered in each of the webmaster tools:-

      In Bing it gives me that The feed was empty
      In google webmaster tools it tells me that Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead.

    Also another problem am encountering is that bing webmaster tools it shows all the sitemaps including the ones i have disabled.

    Is there a way to fix this? Please help me guys.

    This happens to me too. First the sitemap worked, then Google says it is html format. However if I open the sitemap it works normally. What can we do?
