I made a sitemap.xml file of my website with Rage Sitemap Automator. I'm supposed to submit a URL to Google, and the Rage Sitemap Automator produced a URL to submit, the one that the software used to get my website files. The problem is that at Google, where you submit the sitemap URL, my website URL is in front of Sitemap field/enter box. After entering the URL into this field, Google tacks it onto the end of my website URL and it comes back "this seems to be a html page" and "404 not found." (Of course there is no webpage with a URL like that)! I've tried many other combinations, what seems to come closest to working is entering my website URL/sitemap.xml, this seems to point to the location of this .xml file since most of my website files are in a folder with my website URL as the title, that is within my Sites Folder. At least then my webpages are listed, but they all have the red X's by them, also the link "See Sitemap" works and links to my sitemap. Not good enough. Any ideas out there?

Both "http://web.me.com/username/" & "http://web.me.com/username/websitename/" link to the "Enter" Pg. of my website. If you refer back to my first reply to you on this post (the Rage Support Suggestion), I submitted the 2nd URL (above) to Google Webmaster Tools and this time was able to verify it, and access a Dashboard. But when I entered the this 2nd URL into the Sitemap entry field, same results: "404 not found." Days ago I suggested to the Rage Support guy that MobileMe Support told me "they blocked spiders" and basically discouraged its users from being involved with Google's Tools. The Rage guy assured me I was "confused & mistaken, that most of their Sitemap Automator users were with MobileMe," he then offered to solve the problem if I sent my Google Login info. I didn't write back.
So I think your right-it wont work. And for awhile now I've known I wasn't going to renew with MobileMe. Do you have any opinions about possible reliable commercial hosting services, especially with regards to publishing with iWeb and setting up an online store?
Thanx for trying to help.
