    I've some issues regarding the gzipped version of the sitemap! It is generated, BUT if i download the file, I'm not able to unzip it!
    Google also is not able to unzip it!

    Any ideas on that problem?

    BTW: Best SEO plugin ever! ;) Already got 5 stars ;)

    I too saw a red x in Google Webmaster Tools, indicating some kind of compression or file error. The location of the site map was listed, but in looking in that directory, I found it wasn't actually there.

    I've just downloaded the gzipped file from the Yoast plugin, and placed it into the directory listed in Google Webmaster Tools. So we'll see if that fixes it!

    Thought I'd ask if your file actually exists in the directory that Google is looking for it.

    Hope that helps!
