Yoast's WordPress SEO plugin (3 posts)

    Hi guys,

    General question here. I just installed the WordPress SEO plugin and followed the instructions. I'm confused about why I'm not able to find the xml sitemap files on my server, and wondered why I am able to enter the "/page-sitemap.xml" in my Google Webmaster Tools with no problem, but when I put the same URL in my Bing Webmaster tools, I get the following error:

    bing yoast sitemap url error 2013 The sitemap needs to be part of the site. Please enter the full URL of the sitemap and make sure it is on the same domain/host as your site.

    What should I do to correct this? Anyone know?

    Did you enter the full URL (http://www.mysite.com/page-sitemap.xml) or just the page (/page-sitemap.xml)?

    Not sure what I did before, but I had started all over again and it worked. But to answer your question, the bing webmaster system only allows you to but in the complete url. If I were to type in "/page-sitemap.xml", it would throw "http://" infront of it once I tabbed to the next field. So I probably initially used the full url.

    So, not sure what happened, but it works now. I also had to recreate an outlook account.
