[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Google Webmaster Tools cannot parse sitemap.xml
WPSEO v 1.2.3
After installing WPSEO, I checked my Google Webmaster account. It appears that according to google, my sitemap.xml cannot be properly parsed. So I checked the WPSEO settings and found I had nine sitemap.xml files. The relevant ones being (all beginning with http://www.mysite.com/): post-sitemap.xml, page-sitemap.xml, post tag-sitemap.xml. I added one of them to my google webmaster Tools and tested, resulting in the error: “Sitemap contains urls which are blocked by robots.txt.” All the examples listed were from the directory: http://mysite.com/wp-content/uploads/.
In checking my robots.txt file I found that that directory was disallowed. Fine; I removed if from the robots.txt file and retested. Still the same error.
I’m coming to the conclusion that WPSEO is not on the same page as Google with respect to Webmaster Tools.
Anyone have a fix or ideas???
