    I'm getting the following error in the google webmasters dashboard:

    Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead.

    The url of my sitemap is: http://tinyurl.com/3n2g397

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I have the same problem...

  3. In the current version it's XML.

    I've since moved on to another sitemap plugin and use the Catalyst SEO features instead. I think there were some updates in the meantime.

    I have Yoast running on about 14 sites. I just completed the rebuild of POAFC and it has the latest WP SEO plugin, latest WordPress version and I just submitted my sitemap to GWT today.

    Same error.

    The rumor is that the error is actually on Google's side and that the error magically cures itself after differing opinions of time.

    We shall see if mine disappears because it is the same xml code as working and accepted Yoast site maps at GWT so I am tending to believe this theory.
