    Since last version, there is a problem to inform ASK.
    Result of last build process: problem only with ask.
    Google and Bing: OK
    Ask: see result

    Errors, Warnings, Notices:
    WP_DEBUG was set to false somewhere before. You might not see all debug information until you remove this declaration!

    Notice: WP HTTP API Web Request failed: Couldn’t resolve host ‘submissions.ask.com’ in /homez.17/taratata/www/gpsword/wp-content/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/sitemap-core.php on line 2364

    Ping Test
    
    Trying to ping: http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.michigan-auto-accident-lawyers.com%2Fsitemap.xml.gz. The sections below should give you an idea whats going on.

    Result (text only):
    
    Result (HTML):

    FYI: Ask.com seem to have retired the submissions.ask.com domain. The ping reference should be removed from the plugin’s code.
    See at: http://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/31057/ask-com-sitemap-crawler-down-for-good

    “We now utilize a crawling method of adding new content to our search index. The subdomain you refer to was just retired over the weekend, and we’ll be updating that FAQ page very shortly.
    Best regards, Eric from Ask.com”

    But the FAQ is still not updated a month later http://asksupport.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2729
