XML Sitemap Error

I hadn’t actually checked my sitemap.xml file in a while manually, so imagine my surprise when I looked at my dragonblogger.com/sitemap.xml only to find dozens of bogus entries that lead to 404 pages in it!

I immediately and manually rebuilt my sitemap.xml manually with the Google XML Sitemaps plugin and a few short minutes later all was fixed.

You do want to make sure you check your sitemap.xml occasionally because if errors or bad URL’s are listed it means the Google search engines (and others) may index improper pages on your site which can lead to users arriving on an error page.

The fact that these anomalies had the same date update as when I switched my blog theme led me to believe they were related to me switching blog themes and possibly Live Writer doing "temporary" posts when trying to read in the blog theme.
