Google says "Your Sitemap exceeds the maximum file size limit" - but it doesn't1 Recommended Answer
My site's URL is: http://www.digitalhit.com
My sitemap has been fine for monhs. In fact I haven't changed it in a while. Today I was looking at Webmaster Tools and noticed that the Sitemap Index file was giving the warning: Your Sitemap exceeds the maximum file size limit
The only thing is, both files pointed to by the sitemap index file are below the 50,000 url limit.
What's going on?
I uploaded four files on Thursday:
sitemap.xml.gz - 6,508 KB uncompressed
sitemap2.xml.gz - 6,510 KB uncompressed
sitemap3.xml.gz - 4,977 KB uncompressed
Resubmitted them to Google and they still say they're too big. But they're below 50,000 urls and below 10mb.
I'll try resubmitting once more to see if it takes.
The download list is showing checkmarks for the 2nd and 3rd sitemap files and download dates of May 28th and June 2. The first file (which was uploaded at the same time is still showing an old download date of May 23rd. Any idea why it'd still be stuck on that date?
